In my research I am focusing on the development of a photocatalyst for degradation of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) under visible light. Metal halide perovskites (MHPs) demonstrate favorable optoelectronic characteristics for such applications. However, low stability of MHPs towards water and other polar molecules, as well as the use of toxic lead compounds in MHP synthesis, limits their suitability for environmental photocatalysis. By switching to lead-free alternatives and growing protective shells on the surface of MHP particles I am aiming to find the routes towards highly stable, active, and eco-friendly perovskite-based photocatalysts.
