Plants absorb lead from perovskite solar cells more than expected

The best perovskite solar cells today are realized with lead. However, lead from perovskite compounds can be absorbed particularly easily by plants. The bioavailability is significantly higher than that of lead from inorganic compounds leading to increased risk of contamination of the environment.

It comes down to soil with perovskite mineral in it lets plants absorb heavy metals like lead much more easily. Perovskite is used in solar panels. So this mineral could actually be used to remove heavy metals from soil.
