Methylammonium iodide >99.99%


Methylammonium Iodide (MAI; CAS Number: 14965-49-2) is one of the most common precursors used in the preparation of perovskite-based opto-electronic systems. Since the seminal work by Kojima et al (2009) which demonstrated the use of the organolead halide perovskite CH3NH3PbI3 as a photoactive material in solar cells, methylammonium lead triiodide perovskites have been extensively studied. Recent work has provided valuable insights into their properties and optoelectronic performance (Reichert et al., 2020Günzler et al., 2021).

With a purity level > 99.99%, extremely low moisture content and batch-to-batch reproducibility, you can expect consistent results. Greatcell Solar Materials’ Methylammonium Iodide is a free flowing powder and is snow white in appearance.

Greatcell Solar Materials can provide g to kg quantities.
