The application of the advanced materials in the industries is the key to revolutionizing a product line that accelerated the market change and technology development. They can change the processes to be faster, stronger and more sustainable.

Perovskites form an important family of advanced material compounds with well-defined structures. This family includes metallic oxides, halogenated metallic complexes, metallic carbides and nitrides. The structure is categorized as advanced material with numerous applications such as:

  • Solar cells
  • Heterogeneous catalysis in the oil and gas industry
  • Catalytic converters in the automotive industry
  • Fuel cells
  • Electronics such as piezoelectrics materials
  • Superconductors and Semiconductors
  • Sensors for gas and chemical detection
  • Advanced pigments

The perovskite materials show extraordinary and unusual physical properties that have been extensively studied for both practical application and theoretical modelling. The highlights of the perovskite structure are the ability to include a variety of elements with different degree of the oxidation, well resistant to high temperature, stable crystallographic structure, etc. A wide range of chemical and physical characteristics can be achieved by substituting of the different elements in the structure to control the electron transition states and achieve the right properties.

The new materials show significant improvement in the performance of solar cells and the heterogeneous catalyst. Perovskite photovoltaic improved solar cell efficiency. Catalytic converters are another application of the perovskite structure that can reduce the emissions of the combustion engines.

In this presentation, we will describe some examples of perovskite application in solar cells, heterogeneous catalysis and chemical sensors to bring out the diversity of their behaviour and to develop the richness of their potential applications.
