A new solvent system for PbI2 based on HI solution in acetone with a low boiling point is proposed. High solubility of PbI2 is caused by the formation of iodoplumbate complexes, and reaches a concentration of 1.6 M. Upon its crystallization metastable solvate phases PbI2∙HI∙n{(CH3)2CO} are formed. The latter allows for their easy deposition on substrates in a form of smooth and uniform thin films by spin-coating. Through a fast acid-base reaction with a gaseous amine, the films of the intermediate phase can be completely converted to single-phase perovskite films. The developed method allows one to form smooth perovskite films with high crystallinity with a thickness up to 1 μm. Due to easy and fast processing, the developed method can be promising for perovskite technology upscaling. View Full-Text
