Perovskites are a class of materials with useful properties for different optoelectronic applications, such as LEDs and sensors. However, the high lead content of the common CsPbBr3 type and its limited stability both pose challenges for real-world applications. Cs4PbBr6 perovskites show green emission and have attracted attention as an alternative to CsPbBr3 due to their enhanced stability and reduced lead content. However, the synthesis of Cs4PbBr6 usually requires complex procedures, a variety of ligands, or a combination of solvents.

Cuncheng Li, University of Jinan, China, Haibo Zeng, Nanjing University of Science and Technology, China, and colleagues have developed an environmentally friendly, single-solvent, ligand-free route for the gram-scale synthesis of Cs4PbBr6 perovskite solids. The team combined lead bromide and cesium bromide in N,N‐dimethylformamide (DMF) under ambient conditions. Over 10 g ligand-free Cs4PbBr6 perovskite solids could be obtained after simply evaporating the solvent.

The solvent vapor can be recovered and reused. This process eliminates the potential environmental harm caused by using organic solvents. The product has strong photoluminescence, a high photoluminescence quantum yield, and a reversible fluorescent response towards heat and light.
