Overview | Specifications | MSDS | Literature and Reviews | Resources and Support

Like most other alkyl halides that have been used to modify perovskite structures, Acetamidinium Iodide (ADI) is often used to tune the electrical properties of perovskite solar cells and LEDs.

Compared to Formamidinium Iodide (FAI), Acetamidinium Iodide has larger-sized cations which will hinder the growth of 3D structures, thus promoting stability for perovskite electronics.
