Scholarcy highlights

  • In this proof-of-concept study, a nanocomposite of poly(m-aminobenzodioxol) with Fe3O4 magnetic nanorods was synthesized using a one-pot synthesis
  • To the best of our knowledge, this study is the first to report the use of a conductive hydrogel nanocomposite for the encapsulation of the active layer within a hybrid solar cell
  • The final FTO│TiO2 / PAA-G-PABD-Fe3O4NRs gel2+ │Al solar cell demonstrated a power conversion efficiency of 6.08% and a significant enhancement of 2100% in comparison with the solar cells fabricated with PABD-Fe3O4NRs in the absence of the PAA-G and2+ complex
  • We envisage that the synthesis of hydrogel nanocomposites using various nanomaterials will significantly enhance the development of high-efficiency hybrid solar cells
