The method used to assemble dye-sensitized photoelectrochemical (DS-PEC) devices plays a vital role in determining its photoactivity and stability. We report a simple and effective method to assemble supramolecular DS-PECs introducing PMMA as support material and a catalyst modified with long carbon chains as photoanodes. The long carbon chains in combination with PMMA allow to better immobilize the catalyst. DS-PECs obtained by this simple method have display excellent photoactivities and stabilities. A photocurrent density of 1.1mAcm(-2) and a maximum IPCE of 9.5% have been obtained with a 0.2V vs NHE external bias.
