My research is mainly in the field of (perovskite) solar cells. I focus on the synthesis of low-cost organic hole transporting materials, the environmental impact, and the influence of moisture on the perovskite stability. Furthermore I study charge transporting properties in small-molecules, polymers and covalent organic frameworks.  

Recently we developed a low cost hole transporting material (EDOT-OMeTAD) in a simple condensation reaction. In perovskite photovoltaics the hole transporter shows comparable performance to state-of-the-art Spiro-OMeTAD, however the estimated cost contribution is two orders of magnitude lower. In addition, as a result of the simple chemistry, also the environmental impact is reduced. The results have been published: J. Mater. Chem. A, 2015

 

The simplicity of Schiff base condensation chemistry is demonstrated in this video.
