Identified the reaction network controlling perovskite nanocrystal synthesis
Significance and Impact
This approach to complex systems such as Cs-Pb-Br nanocrystal synthesis reveals the details of reaction dynamics necessary to achieve better synthetic and post-synthetic control
- 2337 reactions synthesized to create map of 9 optically distinguished species and investigate chemical transformations.
- The reaction network identified qualitatively explains non-linear transitions between species, size control strategies, weak reversibility.
- Method used could be transferrable to other complex chemical systems.
