We report the use of highly porous, dense, and anisotropic TiO 2 derived from electrospun TiO 2-SiO 2 nanostructures through titanate route in dye-sensitized solar cells. The titanate-derived TiO 2 of high surface areas exhibited superior photovoltaic parameters (efficiency > 7%) in comparison to the respective electrospun TiO 2 nanomaterials and commercially available P-25. © 2012 American Chemical Society.
