    Graphene nanoplatelets (GNP) in the form of thin semitransparent film on F-doped SnO2 (FTO) exhibit high electrocatalytic activity for Co(L)2; where L is 6-(1H-pyrazol-1-yl)-2,2′-bipyridine. The exchange current densities for the Co2+/3+(L)2 redox reaction scaled linearly with the GNP film’s optical absorbance, and they were by 1–2 orders of magnitude larger than those for the I3–/I– couple on the same electrode. The electrocatalytic activity of GNP films with optical transmission below 88% is outperforming the activity of platinized FTO for the Co2+/3+(L)2 redox reaction. Dye-sensitized solar cells with Y123 dye adsorbed on TiO2 photoanode achieved energy conversion efficiencies between 8 and 10% for both GNP and Pt-based cathodes. However, the cell with GNP cathode is superior to that with Pt-FTO cathode particularly in fill factors and in the efficiency at higher illumination intensities.
