Abstract

The conversion of greenhouse gas CO2 into novel materials is the most promising approach to solve greenhouse gas issues. Herein, we report for the first time the reaction of potassium with CO2 to synthesize three-dimensional honeycomb-like structured graphene (3DHG). Furthermore, 3DHG exhibited excellent performance as a counter electrode for hole transport material (HTM)-free perovskite solar cells, leading to a power conversion efficiency of 10.06%. This work constitutes a new aspect of potassium chemistry for material synthesis from a greenhouse gas and the generation of electrical energy from sunlight.
