Silver and copper were usually main ingredients used in making modern electronics and solar cells. Yet, with new innovative technology, scientists from the Department of Chemistry at the University of Warwick have discovered a new way of patterning the metals to provide energy in a more sustainable and cost-effective manner for large scale production without producing toxic chemicals and waste. The researchers discovered that the organofluorine layer only needs to be used in 10 billionths of a meter to be effective whereas before, more was used in making the solar cells and electronics. The pioneering approach is forecasted to be extremely effective in the coming years where sustainable energy is needed more than before.
