In this study, the influence of electrochemical properties by mixing Tetrabutylammonium hydroxide (TBAOH) and ammonium hydroxide (NH4OH) electrode on the dssc. The titanias were prepared using a sol-gel method by mixing Tetrabutylammonium hydroxide and Ammonium hydroxide. The $TiO_2$ nanopowder prepared by sol-gel methode, and to improve the distributed properties of $TiO_2$ nanopowder, the TBAOH and NH4OH was added. The I-V values of cells show that the Tetrabutylammonium has 6.51% efficiency.
