General description

Cadmium chloride is colorless, odorless, and highly soluble in water. It is widely used in the field of catalysis and perovskite solar cells.

Application

Cadmium chloride can be used:
  • As an additive to fabricate perovskite solar cells to improve long-term stability and performance. The incorporation of Cd ions enhances optical absorption and carrier transfer.
  • As a precursor to synthesize functionalized cadmium telluride quantum dots for fluorescent immunosensors.
It can also be used as a catalyst for:
  • Aza-Michael reaction of electron-deficient alkene and a wide range of amines.
  • The one-pot synthesis of dihydropyrimidones via the Biginelli reaction.
  • The synthesis of benimidazoles.

From Form to Function: Molding Porous Materials in Three Dimensions by Colloidal Crystal Templating

Colloidal quantum dots (CQDs) are semiconducting crystals of only a few nanometers (ca. 2–12 nm) coated with ligand/surfactant molecules to help prevent agglomeration.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
