Overview | Specifications | MSDS | Literature and Reviews

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.
