Novel approach to perovskite solar cells

A team of chemists are offering novel a approach for the selective layer formation in perovskite solar cells. The molecule assembles itself into a monolayer, which can cover a variety of surfaces and can function as a hole transporting material in a perovskite solar cell. Less and cheaper materials are being used in the process.
