I wonder what is the best way to describe things in an academic manuscript writing.
for example, I have a sentence
therefore, passivation of the surface or the introduction of additional interlayers between perovskite and ZnO improves the stability of the cells (that is a google translate version)
therefore, passivating the surface or introducing additional interlayers between the perovskite and ZnO improves the stability of the cells (that is my initial version)
It is probably coming to a more general question: is it better to use a gerund or verb-based nouns in academic writing. Or no difference?
Thanks in advance!
