Title: Synthesis, structure and optical studies of inorganic–organic hybrid semiconductor, (H{sub 3}NC{sub 6}H{sub 4}CH{sub 2}NH{sub 3}) PbI{sub 4}

Highlights: • New type of IO hybrid semiconductor has been synthesized and reported. • Inorganic (PbI{sub 4}){sup 2−} nano-ribbons are surrounded by organic entities. • Room-temperature optical exciton and charge-transfer features are reported. • Structural and optical mechanisms are useful in nanoscale electronic devices. - Abstract: Synthesis, structural and optical studies of inorganic–organic (IO) hybrid, 1,2-benzyldiammoniumtetraiodo plumbate (H{sub 3}NC{sub 6}H{sub 4}CH{sub 2}NH{sub 3}) PbI{sub 4} are presented. The titled compound crystallizes into triclinic system of P-1(2) space group with mutually surrounded inorganic (PbI{sub 4}){sup 2−} organic (C{sub 7}H{sub 12}N{sub 2}) entities. These one-dimensional IO hybrids are thermally stable up to 300 °C and show room-temperature exciton along with charge-transfer photoluminescence features. Structural and optical mechanisms are discussed for future applications in nanoscaled optoelectronic devices.
