The synthesis of butane-like (GeH(3))(2)(SiH(2))(2) (1), (GeH(3))(2)SiH(SiH(3)) (2), and (GeH(3))(2)(SiH(2)GeH(2)) (3) Si-Ge hydrides with applications in low-temperature synthesis of Ge-rich Si(1-x)Ge(x) optoelectronic alloys has been demonstrated. The compositional, vibrational, structural, and thermochemical properties of these compounds were studied by(More)
The (SiH₃)₃P hydride is introduced as a practical source for n-doping of group IV semiconductors and as a highly-reactive delivery agent of -(SiH₃)₂P functionalities in exploratory synthesis. In contrast to earlier methods, the compound is produced here in high purity quantitative yields via a new single-step method based on reactions of SiH₃Br and(More)
Hydrolysis reactions of silyl-germyl triflates are used to produce ether-like Si-Ge hydride compounds including H(3)SiOSiH(3) and the previously unknown O(SiH(2)GeH(3))(2). The structural, energetic and vibrational properties of the latter were investigated by experimental and quantum chemical simulation methods. A combined Raman, infrared and theoretical(More)
We describe the synthesis of a new family of chlorinated Si-Ge hydrides based on the formula ClnH6-nSiGe. Selectively controlled chlorination of H3SiGeH3 is provided by reactions with BCl3 to produce ClH2SiGeH3 (1) and Cl2HSiGeH3 (2). This represents a viable single-step route to the target compounds in commercial yields for semiconductor applications. The(More)
The compounds Ph(3)SnSiH(3) and Ph(3)SnGeH(3) (Ph = C(6)H(5)) have been synthesized as colorless solids containing Sn-MH(3) (M = Si, Ge) moieties that are stable in air despite the presence of multiple and highly reactive Si-H and Ge-H bonds. These molecules are of interest since they represent potential model compounds for the design of new classes of IR(More)
