Ligand manipulation towards stable lead halide perovskite nanocrystals

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Metal halide perovskite nanocrystals, in particular lead-based nanocrystals, have attracted considerable attention in the last decade due to their unique optoelectronic properties. One of the main drawbacks of this class of materials is their low stability. Therefore, much effort is dedicated to enhancing their storage, photo-, thermal-stability as well as their stability in polar solvents, which is mainly tested by measuring percentage loss in their photoluminescence quantum yield. These studies primarily focused on manipulating surface passivation through using different passivating ligands in a direct synthesis or in a ligand exchange process. The nature of the binding ligands is mainly explored using nuclear magnetic resonance. Stable lead halide perovskite nanocrystals passivated with short ligands paves the way for their employment in stable and efficient optoelectronic devices.
