A method that uses a supramolecular electrolyte to improve both the interfacial contact and the ionic conductivity was developed. In dilute solutions, each chain was separated from the others and its coil size was small. It was confirmed that these electrolytes exist as an absolute solid-state film inside a dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSC) after vacuum drying for more than three days. It was also confirmed that the energy conversion efficiencies of the DSSC employing supramolecular electrolytes remained stable during operation for seven days.
