Wide-Gap Chalcopyrites

Chalcopyrites, particularly people with a large band hole, are attention-grabbing fabrics when it comes to their technological capability within the subsequent iteration of thin-film sunlight cells and by way of their simple fabric houses. They show uniquely low disorder formation energies, resulting in strange doping and part habit and to super benign grain barriers.

Often, pure metal is the desired form of recovered metal. However, it can also be manufactured into products such as coatings and electroformed objects. In addition, it can be utilized in devices such as batteries, electrodes, and sensors. In some applications such as batteries and fuel cells, metals and/or metal compounds are used as electrodes in aqueous media. Recovery of metals from concentrated solutions is made by electrochemical reduction. In electrolytic reduction, the dissolved metal ions are plated on a cathode.

51 mol/1000 g H2 O) compared to the number of moles of all solutes. Consequently, the mole fraction can be approximated for aqueous chemistry: xi ≈ ni . 1 m). The error is less than 2% for solutions containing 1 mol of solute. Compensation for this error will be discussed later. Most dissolved species are not reported in terms of mole fractions. Thus, it is more convenient to use a common standard concentration unit that most accurately represents mole fraction. The most common units of concentration are molality, m, (moles of solute/1000 g of solvent), molarity, M, (moles of solute/1000 cm3 of solution) and parts per million, ppm, (micrograms of solute/gram of solution or solid, or grams/metric ton of solution or solid).

6 Le Chatelier’s Principle: If a system at equilibrium is perturbed, the system responds to counteract the perturbation and reestablish equilibrium. SOLUBILITY PRODUCT Species often combine to form precipitates. Precipitation occurs when the reactant activities exceed the solubility product. The solubility product is generally written as Ksp . Reactions with the precipitate on the left-hand side of the equation are dissociation reactions. The equilibrium constant of a dissociation reaction equals the solubility product.
