Chemically Gluing Perovskites to Silicon

Congratulations to Alex and Roghi, as well as our collaborators John David Obayemi, Martiale Gaetan Zebaze Kana, Winston Soboyejo (Dean Wole) on the publication of their manuscript, Synthesis and Characterization of Alkylamine-Functionalized Si(111) for Perovskite Adhesion with Minimal Interfacial Oxidation or Electronic Defects, in ACS Applied Materials and Interfaces!

New manuscript: Hematite-based Solar Water Splitting in Acidic Solutions

The first manuscript involving our group was just released in Angewandte Chemie.  This research was lead by Wei Li and principally conducted by Dunwei Wang‘s research group in the Department of Chemistry at Boston College.  We were able to provide assistance with x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy studies of their catalytic surfaces.  Congratulations Wei and Dunwei!
