General description

We are committed to bringing you Greener Alternative Products, which adhere to one or more of The 12 Principles of Greener Chemistry. This product has been enhanced for energy efficiency. Click here for more details.

Application

Benzylammonium iodide can be used as an additive to improve the crystal formation of perovskites, which further facilitate an increase in the efficiency of solar cells. It can also be used in the formation of alkaline exchange membrane based fuel cells.
The iodide and bromide based alkylated halides find applications as precursors for fabrication of perovskites for photovoltaic applications.

Next generation solar cells have the potential to achieve conversion efficiencies beyond the Shockley-Queisser (S-Q) limit while also significantly lowering production costs.

Dr. Perini and Professor Correa-Baena discuss the latest research and effort to obtain higher performance and stability of perovskite materials.

For several decades, the need for an environmentally sustainable and commercially viable source of energy has driven extensive research aimed at achieving high efficiency power generation systems that can be manufactured at low cost.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
