The article presents information on an experiment related to water phase sensitization of nanoporous TiO2 film. There has recently been much research on solar-to-electrical energy conversion with dye-sensitized nanoporous TiO2 photoelectrochemical cells. A nanoporous TiO2 film was prepared by coating TiO2 paste on a transparent indium tin oxide electrode by spin coating three or four times and calcining in air. In order to examine the reason for the decrease in photocurrent, a cyclic voltammogram was measured in aqueous solution containing KNO3.
