Dear Authors,


I am pleased to invite you to submit a book chapter for upcoming book “Interfacial engineering in functional materials for dye-sensitized solar cells” which will be published in Wiley Publishers. The tentative chapter wise title for the book is as follows.

Interfacial engineering in functional materials for dye-sensitized solar cells


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


Chapter 2:           Function of Photoanode: Charge Transfer Dynamics, Challenges and Alternative Strategies


Chapter 3:           Nanoarchitectures as photoanode


Chapter 4:           Light scattering materials as photoanode


Chapter 5:           Function of compact (blocking) layer in photoanode


Chapter 6:           Function of TiCl4 post-treatment in photoanode


Chapter 7:           Doped Semiconductor as photoanode


Chapter 8:           Dual/Coupled Semiconductor as photoanode


Chapter 9:           Plasmonic nanocomposite as photoanode


Chapter 10:         Carbon nanotubes based nanocomposite as photoanode


Chapter 11:         Graphene based nanocomposite as photoanode


Chapter 12:         Graphitic Carbon Nitride based nanocomposite as photoanode


Chapter 13:         Other Carbonaceous materials as photoanode


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 3rd October 2018 to


The deadline for the submission of complete book chapter is 20 December 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.
