Merck In Pact For Solar Electrolytes

Department: Business
Keywords: solar, electrolytes

Merck KGaA and the Australian firm Dyesol will cooperate in developing electrolytes for dye solar cells, an alternative technology for generating solar energy. Merck is a leading producer of ionic liquids, which are essential for making dye solar-cell electrolytes, and Dyesol is the major manufacturer of the cells, the companies say. Dye solar cells carry out a form of artificial photosynthesis with electrolytes, a titanium dioxide layer, and ruthenium deposited onto a substrate made of glass, metal, or polymer.
