A multi-institutional collaboration has developed coordination nanosheets (CONASHs) that have demonstrated the highest stability under air exposure reported to date, the researchers claimed. The work may find use in optoelectronic applications; CONASHs have generated interest due to their ability to absorb light at multiple wavelength ranges and convert them into electrons with greater efficiency than other types of nanosheets.
Previously, the phenomenon had been demonstrated in a CONASH composed of a zinc atom bonded with a porphyrin-dipyrrin molecule. However, the CONASH quickly degraded due to the low stability of organic molecules in liquid electrolytes, which are commonly used for current conduction.
Scientists from Japan and…
