Special Issue "Effect of Solvents and Solution Chemistry on the Properties of Perovskite Solar Cells"

Interests: perovskite solar cells; indoor photovoltaics
Despite the relatively short history of perovskite solar cells (PSCs), their power conversion efficiencies (PCEs) have steadily increased, reaching over 25%. However, among a range of fabrication methods for PSCs, the use of organic solvents in each layer is still limited. N,N-Dimethylformamide and Dimethyl sulfoxide are the most commonly used solvents for the perovskite precursor, while chlorobenzene is frequently used in both the electron transport and hole transport layers. Recently, new solvents such as N-methylpyrrolidone and trichloroethane have been explored, demonstrating superior PCEs compared to conventional solvents. Nonetheless, the precise optimization conditions and working mechanisms of these diverse organic solvents in PSCs remain unclear.
This Special Issue is focused on investigating the effect of solvent and solution chemistry on the properties of perovskite solar cells. We cordially invite you to submit your original research articles and reviews to this Special Issue.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Crystals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
