Abstract

A novel gel polymer electrolyte based on poly(acrylamide)-poly(ethylene glycol) composite and binary organic solvent was prepared. And the highest ionic conductivity of the gel polymer electrolyte was 1.94 mS cm-1 under the ambient atmosphere. The polymer gel electrolyte based on the composite of poly(acrylamide)-poly(ethylene glycol), the binary organic solvent of ethylene carbonate and propylene carbonate and the additive of 4-tert-bytylpyridine has been employed to fabricate quasi-solid state dye-sensitized solar cell with an overall conversion efficiency of approximately 3% under irradiation of 60 mW cm-2.
