Xylidine ponceau dye based photogalvanic cell: Energy conversion for sustainable development

K R Genwa, Chandra Prakash Sagar


The photogalvanic behavior of Xylidine ponceau dye was studied in Xylidine ponceau – Tween 60 – Ascorbic acid system. The experimental studies were performed of different at pH conditions and dye concentrations. The effects of electrode area, light intensity and diffusion length on cell electrical parameter are studied in various experimental conditions. Cell generates maximum power of 68.77 μW in ideal conditions. conversion efficiency was calculated by observed photopotential and photocurrent values at power point.
