Photoanodes for flexible DSSC have been prepared through a chemical sintering method using hydrothermal cement at low temperature of 120°C. The addition of the hydrothermal cement can effectively increase the adhesion between the photoanode and flexible ITOPET substrate and build the interconnection between nanoparticles at low temperature for the fast transport of electrons. The flexible DSSC based on the photoanode obtains a relatively high photo‐to‐electric conversion efficiency of 4.0%. The method basing on the commercially available TiO2 with a small proportion of hydrothermal cement is suitable for roll‐to‐roll screen‐printing preparation, which is expected to be scaled up for mass production of high performance flexible DSSCs.
