Abstract : Mesoporous SnO 2 agglomerates with hierarchical structures and a high surface area were fabricated through a molten salt method. The SnO 2 demonstrated high photoelectric conversion efficiencies of 3.05% and 6.23% (with TiCl 4 treatment) in dye-sensitized solar cells, which are attributed to its dual functionality of providing high dye-loading and efficient light scattering. © 2012 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
