Eco-Friendly Process to Control the Assembly of Functional Photovoltaic Polymers

Eco-Friendly Process to Control the Assembly of Functional Photovoltaic Polymers

Solar cell efficiency mainly relies on the precise assembly of polymers. These polymers organize themselves into thin films that are many times thinner than a human hair. Presently, environmentally unfriendly solvents are used in the driving of polymer assembly. Surfactants, which are detergent-like molecules, are far greener and have been shown to also direct polymer assembly. [More]
