Chromium and Titanium based Stannum Nanocomposites materials as electron acceptors for next generation bulk Heterojunction photovoltaic cells
MetadataShow full item record
Renewable energy has become the centrepiece of research in resolving the energy crisis. One of the forms of renewable energy is solar energy. This form of energy is costly to develop. Organic molecules are promising materials for the construction of next generation photovoltaic cells considering their advantage of lower cost compared to crystalline silicon that is currently used in solar cells. This forms the basis of this research, which focused on the synthesis and characterisation of poly(3- hexylthiophene) P3HT, stannum (Sn) nanoparticles and stannum-based bimetallic stannum-titanium (SnTi), stannum-chromium (SnCr) and stannum-vanadium (SnV) nanoparticles for the application in the construction of heterojunction photovoltaic cells (PVCs).
