Solvent-Free Brush Polymer Electrolytes for Lithium Batteries

Written by Mukundan Thelakkat

We present a comparative study of linear and brush polymers based on PEG towards application in L-batteries as solid polymer electrolytes. See ACS Applied Energy Materials, 2019 ASAP for details

Cu(TFSI)2-Doped Hole Conductors for Efficient CH3NH3PbI3 Perovskite Solar Cells

Written by Mukundan Thelakkat

One of the challenges in n-i-p perovskite solar cells is to create stable doped (n and p) extraction layers. In this paper (ACS Applied Energy Materials 2019, ASAP) we demonstrate the use of

Cu(TFSI)2 as dopant for spiro-OMeTAD without the need of additives such Li-TFSI or tBP and air-doping

Block Copolymer Micelles for Polymer Semiconductor Nanocomposites

Written by Mukundan Thelakkat

Compartmentalized synthesis of P3HT-TiO2 nanocomposites with well-defined morphology via a micellar route was realized using the concept Self-organized Hybrids. See ACS Appl. Nano Mater. 2019, 2, 2133−2143

Ultrathin Polymeric SAMFETs with High Field-Effect Mobility

Written by Mukundan Thelakkat

We successfully grafted a monolayer of P3HT in an end-on fashion using click chemistry and realized highly efficient SAMFETs using polymeric semiconductor for the first time. For details, see ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces, 2018

The role of PbI2 in CH3NH3PbI3 perovskite fully revealed

Written by Mukundan Thelakkat

With two publications, (PCCP, 2018 and JMC,C 2018) we studied in details the consequences of having traces of PbI2 in MAPI towards efficiency, stability and phase transition temperatures
