Abstract

image

A strategy to introduce semiconducting and mesoporous carbon nanohorns as interlayers in the photoelectrodes of dye-sensitized solar cells, without affecting the overall performance, is reported by Dirk M. Guldi and co-workers in article number 1301577. This provides an easy, clean, and ecofriendly alternative to achieve highefficiency solar cells.
