WOx before Pt: Ordered mesoporous tungsten suboxide (m-WO3−x) is synthesized by using a hard template and a partial reduction process. The m-WO3−x is used as an alternative catalyst for a counter electrode (CE) instead of Pt for iodine-free electrolyte (T2/T−)-based dye-sensitized solar cells. The catalytic activity of m-WO3−x CE is superior to that of conventional Pt CEs.
