Abstract

The photoresponse of chemically synthesized polyaniline (PAn) film has been studied. PAn, casted in the form of film, on ITO glass substrate formed the photoanode, 0.1 M aqueous LiClO4 solution has been used as electrolyte and platinum as counter electrode. This photocell shows good performance.
