Intrinsic defects in CsPbBr3 microcrystalline films have been studied using thermally stimulated current (TSC) technique in a wide temperature range (100–400 K). Below room temperature, TSC emission is composed by a set of several energy levels, in the range 0.11–0.27 eV, suggesting a quasi-continuum distribution of states with almost constant density. Above room temperature, up to 400 K, the temperature range of interest for solar cells, both dark current and photocurrent, are mainly dominated by energy levels in the range 0.40–0.45 eV. Even if measured trap densities are high, in the range 1013–1016 cm−3, the very small capture cross-sections, about 10−26 m2, agree with the high defect tolerance characterizing this material.

This work is focused on the realization of a new manufacturing process based on the introduction of TiO2 nanostructured coatings on the surface of red earthenware pottery for domestic use. The aim of the study is to improve the technical properties of the product made from lime and iron-rich clays used to produce traditional artistic Tuscan pottery (Italy). The identified strategy involves the application of nanoparticles onto the surface of ceramic substrates via a sol-gel based process; the initial porosity of the earthenware promotes the insertion of inert nanoparticles in the outermost part of the ceramic material by simple immersion of bisqueware in the colloidal solutions of nanoparticles. Morphological investigation of the functionalized surfaces has been carried out by scanning electron microscope and atomic force microscopy, while the effectiveness of the treatment was checked by evaluating the water absorption capacity in compliance with the standard method AS-1012.21-1999. The obtained results show a reduction of surface porosity, which turns into a reduced water uptake respect to the traditional pottery, maintaining, at the same time, identical aesthetical characteristics.

The combination of metal nanoparticles (Pd or Pt NPs) with NAD-dependent thermostable alcohol dehydrogenase (TADH) resulted in the one-flask catalytic double reduction of 3-methyl-2-cyclohexenone to 3-(1S,3S)-methylcyclohexanol. In this article, some assumptions about the interactions between a chemocatalyst and a biocatalyst have been proposed. It was demonstrated that the size of the NPs was the critical parameter for the mutual inhibition: the bigger the NPs, the more harmful for the enzyme they were, even if the NPs themselves were only moderately inactivated. Conversely, the smaller the NPs, the more minimal the TADH denaturation, although they were dramatically inhibited. Resuming, the chemocatalysts were very sensitive to deactivation, which was not related to the amount of enzyme used, while the inhibition of the biocatalyst can be strongly reduced by minimizing the NPs/TADH ratio used to catalyze the reaction. Among some methods to avoid direct binding of NPs with TADH, we found that using large Pd NPs and protecting their surfaces with a silica shell, the overall yield of 3-(1S,3S)-methylcyclohexanol was maximized (36%).
