Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce a Special Issue for Materials, “Nanocatalysts for Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells”. Tremendous progress has been made in the area of catalyst materials, improving both the solar-to-electrical energy conversion and long-term performance stability of dye-sensitized solar cells, one of the next generations of photovoltaic devices. This Special Issue will contain new scientific research work that involves the progression of both traditional and advanced novel catalyst materials as counter-electrode applications for dye-sensitized solar cells. Research groups are invited to submit any relevant publications prior to the targeted deadline of 31 December 2020.
