Dear Authors,


I am pleased to invite you to submit a book chapter for upcoming book “New generation counter electrode materials for high performance dye-sensitized solar cells” which will be published in Cambridge Scholars Publishing, UK. The tentative chapter wise title for the book is as follows.


New Generation Counter Electrode Materials for Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells


Chapter 1:     Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells: History, Configuration, Components, Working Principles

Chapter 2:     Function of Counter Electrode in Charge Transfer Dynamics: Challenges and Alternative Strategies

Chapter 3:     Metal (Alloy/core-shell) as Counter electrode

Chapter 3:     Metal oxides as Counter electrode

Chapter 4:     Transition Metal Carbide as Counter Electrode

Chapter 5:     Transition Metal Nitride as Counter Electrode

Chapter 6:     Transition Metal Sulphide as Counter Electrode

Chapter 7:     Chalcogenides as Counter Electrode

Chapter 8:     Polymer and its composite as Counter Electrode

Chapter 9:     Graphene and its composite as Counter Electrode

Chapter 10:  Carbon Nanotube and its composite as Counter Electrode

Chapter 11:  Carbon Nanofiber and its composite as Counter Electrode

Chapter 12: Mesoporous Carbon/Activated Carbon and its composite as Counter Electrode

Chapter 13:   Quantum Dots as Counter Electrode


The book covers recent advancements in the materials for counter electrode applications in dye-sensitized solar cells. The proposed book will be composed with expending field of solar energy conversion, a wide span of technological breakthrough, opportunities, possibilities and compile challenges. The adopted subject enables hugely impact on solving near future energy demands.



Since we are aware of your contribution in the field and it would be our pleasure if you could accept the invitation to submit a chapter for this book. There is no page charge for the publication of the book chapter; however, the acceptance is purely based on the merit/quality of the manuscript. If you are interested to participate in our publishing endeavour, please submit one page abstract of your chapter with title, authors name and their affiliation along with the contributing authors biodata on or before by 25, March 2018 to


The deadline for the submission of complete book chapter is 05 July 2018.


The length of book chapter should have 25 - 35 page length having maximum 8-12 figures, tables and illustrations all together, if any. The entire book chapter will be published after peer-review. We look forward to establish cooperation with you shortly.


You are also requested to suggest the name of some other suitable and interested person’s name to join us in this Book or forward this mail to them. If you have any queries about this special issue or about the publishers, please do not hesitate to contact me.


Best wishes!
