 Hole transport materials


Hole transport materials (HTM's) are used in perovskite solar cells. However, they can also be used to replace the liquid electrolyte of conventional DSSC's to make solid-state DSSC devices. For both of these applications, Spiro-OMeTAD has traditionally been the HTM of choice, due to its superior performance. The Dyenamo HTMs DN-X02 and DN-X03 hav been used to realize perovskite solar cells with efficiencies as high as 19.8 %. In addition, they are offered at very competitive prices. They are thus the natural reference materials for perovskite solar cell research and industrialization. For larger amounts than the ones displayed, please contact i...@dyenamo.se (protected link).

Poly(triaryl amine)

Description:
Description: p-Type polymeric semiconductor used in perovskite solar cells, OLEDs and other organic electronics applications. In perovskite solar cells it has been used with great success, enabling efficiencies in excess of 20%. More recently, it has also been shown that PTAA plays an important part in making highly stable perovskite solar cells by preventing metal atoms from the electrode from diffusing into the perovskite.
