    Abstract Image

    Direct conversion of preprocessed binary semiconductor NCs as template holds the key toward the shape control of hybrid perovskites. Here we report on an innovative route for realizing shape-controlled hybrid organohalide perovskite NCs from two-dimensional PbS NCs on solid substrates. Rectangular PbI2 NCs are first synthesized by iodination of PbS NCs. Resultant PbI2 NCs are subsequently transformed into the well-defined rectangular hybrid perovskite NCs upon controlled CH3NH3Br exposure. Structural analyses using X-ray absorption fine structure reveal transition of cubic lattice of PbS to hybrid perovskites with a mixture of cubic and tetragonal phases exhibiting a bimodal distribution of shorter Pb–Br and longer Pb–I bonds around an immediate neighboring lead absorber within the first coordination shell. This direct all anion exchange reaction route opens up new strategies for the fabrication of shape-controlled perovskite NCs on flexible substrates from suitable existing binary NCs as template for optoelectronic applications.
