Photocatalytic Conversion of CO2 to CO by a Copper(II) Quaterpyridine Complex

Cupric CO2 conversion: The photocatalytic reduction of CO2 to CO by a [Cu(qpy)]2+ (qpy: quaterpyridine) is highly efficient and selective. In MeCN solution in the presence of Ru(bpy)32+ (bpy: bipyridine), BIH (1,3-dimethyl-2-phenyl-2,3-dihydro-1H-benzo[d]imidazole) and TEOA (triethanolamine), and 3 % H2O, high turnover number and selectivity are obtained, the highest among molecular 3d-metal catalysts reported so far.

    Engineered layers: Low-temperature solution-processed NiOx nanoparticle film is usually accompanied with defect formation. Here, we find that 4-bromobenzoic acid can form a self-assembled monolayer (SAM) on the NiOx film and effectively tune the interfacial properties, resulting in high perovskite solar cells (PSCs) efficiency. Also, we incorporate the above-mentioned SAM into flexible PSCs

    In a bind: The modification of silicon surfaces for use in anodes through the covalent attachment of binder molecules has multiple effects, such as improved adhesion strength to the current collector, passivation, ease of electrode processability, enhanced nanoparticle packing density, improved resistance to stress during volume changes, and reduced parasitic material in the electrode formulation.

    Upping the face: Interfacial engineering in perovskite solar cells is beneficial to improving photovoltaic performance because of the effective charge collection by changing the work function and/or dipole moment and reducing trapping states and recombination by improving electronic coupling through chemical binding. Bifunctional organic materials or nonstoichiometric approaches are effective methods to passivate grain boundaries of perovskite films.
