Results of diffusion coefficient measurements of triiodide in a mixture of two ionic liquids (1-methyl-3-propylimidazolium iodide and 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium tetrafluoroborate) at 25 °C are described in this paper. Four electrochemical methods for measuring diffusion coefficients of triiodide were evaluated for their reliability and performance, including impedance spectroscopy and polarization measurements at thin layer cells as well as cyclic voltammetry and chronoamperometry at microelectrodes of different radii. Viscosities of the blends were measured to investigate the transport behaviour of triiodide ions used in Grätzel-type dye-sensitized solar cells.
