Magnesiothermic reduction can directly convert SiO2 into Si nanostructures. Despite intense efforts, efficient fabrication of highly nanoporous silicon by Mg still remains a significant challenge due to the exothermic reaction nature. By employing table salt (NaCl) as a heat scavenger for the magnesiothermic reduction, we demonstrate an effective route to(More)
A series of ternary graphite intercalation compounds (GICs) of alkali metal cations (M = Li, Na, K) and diamines [EN (ethylenediamine), 12DAP (1,2-diaminopropane), and DMEDA (N,N-dimethylethylenediamine)] are reported. These include stage 1 and 2 M-EN-GIC (M = Li, d(i) = 0.68-0.84 nm; M = Na, d(i) = 0.68 nm), stage 2 Li-12DAP-GIC (d(i) = 0.83 nm), and stage(More)
