Congratulation to Richard Brutchey group
Chemical & Engineering News highlighted work by USC chemists Priscilla D. Antunez, Federico A. Rabuffetti, and Richard L. Brutchey in which they prepared phase-pure SnS films using a simple low-temperature solution-phase method (Chem. Mater. 2014, 26, 5444). The ease by which these films can be prepared when compared to more laborious and costly traditional methods make them more tractable as sustainable photovoltaic absorber materials.
