Josh travelled to the Houses of Parliament this week to present his research on metal-organic nanosheets for tandem catalysis to MPs.
He was selected as part of the STEM for Britain competition, and met with both Sheffield Hallam MP Olivia Blake, and Sheffield Central MP Paul Blomfield to discuss the work he has been doing during his PhD.
Kezia and Jona have published their first paper together! The article, published in the Journal of Materials Chemistry A, demonstrates the first example of a MON-based solar cell. Addition of porphyrin-based MONs into a bulk heterojunction solar cell shows almost doubling of the power conversion efficiency!
This paper was highly collaborative, with experiments performed across both the Departments of Chemistry and Physics. Kez worked with the groups of Prof. David Lidzey, Dr Jenny Clark, and Dr Ahmed Iraqi to complete this work.
