iso-Butylammonium iodide


Product Code M2059A1
Price £111.00

Like other alkylammonium halides, iso-butylammonium iodide (iBAI) is used to tune perovskite structures to achieve the desired size of perovskite grains and nanoplates for LED and solar cell applications.

With a branched side-chain,  iso-butylammonium iodide promotes solubility and hinders the growth of 3D perovskite structures - helping you to achieve device performance stability.
