Abstract

We report the synthesis and crystal structure of an organic–inorganic compound, ethylenediammonium lead iodide, NH3CH2CH2NH3PbI4. Synchrotron-based single crystal X-ray diffraction experiments revealed that the pristine and thermally treated crystals differ in the organic cation behaviour, which is characterized by a partial disorder in the thermally treated crystal. Based on current–voltage measurements, increased disorder of the organic cation is associated with enhanced photoconductivity. This compound could be a potential candidate for interface engineering in lead halide perovskite-based optoelectronic devices.
