Abstract

(Graph Presented) FeOx-supported single Pt atoms are used for the first time as counter electrodes (CEs) in dye-sensitized solar cells (DSCs), which are mesoporous photovoltaic devices. This system enables the investigation of the electrocatalytic behavior of a single-atom catalyst (SAC). Compared with conventional Pt CEs, the SAC-based CEs exhibit better reversibility as indicated by the peak-to-peak separation (Epp). A high degree of atom utilization is demonstrated.
