Rye-sensitized solar cell (DSSC) is a new class of solar cell, which consists of nanoporous TiO$_2$ electrode, dye-sensitizer, electrolyte, and counter electrode. Such cell is operated in sunlight via the principle of photosynthetic electrochemistry. In order to obtain the good dispersion of nano size TiO$_2$ particles In slurry, the pH of solvent, the sort and quantify of solvent additive and the quantity of surfactant were adjusted. As results, the lower the pH of solvent was the lower the viscosity of the slurry became. The addition of ethylene glycol and propylene glycol to dilute HNO$_3$ brought about the lowering of viscosity and the enhancement of stability in slurry. The addition of surfactant lowered the viscosity of slurry. It was possible to obtain the homogeneous and uniformly dispersed mesoporous TiO$_2$ film using the dilute HNO$_3$ solvent of pH 2 with the addition of ethylene glycol and neutral surfactant. DSSC was assembled with TiO$_2$ electrode and Pt electrode, and its photoelectric property was measured using the monochromatic wavelength in the rangee of 350∼700 nm.
