Imidazolium Iodide


Product Code M2070A1
Price £156.00 ex. VAT

Imidazolium iodide (ImDI) and it derivatives are normally used as electrolyte materials for dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs).

Recently, with the development of perovskite solar cells and light-emitting diodes (LEDs), imidazolium iodide has also been used as an additive to perovskite solutions to inhibit the growth of 3D structures. This makes the structure less sensitive to moisture, thus improving device stability and lifetime.
