AbstractGraphene-based materials represent an attractive alternative to platinum in dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSC) counter electrodes to contribute to an efficient conversion of solar energy into electricity. Despite the slower kinetics of carbon for the reduction of triiodide compared to platinum, they are characterized by low cost and promising stability. In this work, two different materials are investigated: reduced few-layer graphene oxide (rFLGO) and reduced graphene oxide quantum dots (rGOQD). The electrochemical performance of DSSC assembled with either rFLGO or rGOQD at the counter electrode is correlated to their most important physico-chemical features. The domain size of graphene sheets had an important effect on the performance at the counter electrode, with quantum dots performing 13% higher efficiency than rFLGO, correlated with a higher density of active sites. Both graphene nanostructures exhibited a better stability behavior upon electrochemical cycling and seasoning of the cells as compared to Pt counter electrode.
