- Dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) are one type of highly efficient low-cost solar cells among third-generation photovoltaic devices. Replacing the expensive components of DSSCs with alternative inexpensive and earth-abundant materials would further reduce their price in the solar cell market. Recently, graphene-based low-cost counter electrodes (CEs) have been developed, which could serve as a potential alternative to the expensive platinum-based CEs. In this review article, we have summarized recent research on various reduced graphene oxide (rGO)-based composite CE materials, methods for their synthesis, their catalytic activity, and the effective utilization of such CEs in DSSCs. The photovoltaic performance of DSSCs made of rGO-based composite CEs were compared with the reference Pt-based cells, and the photovoltaic parameters are summarized in tables
