NMR Study of the Synthesis of Alkyl-Terminated Silicon Nanoparticles from the Reaction of SiCl 4 with the Zintl Salt , NaSi

The synthesis of silicon nanoclusters and their characterization by multinuclear solidstate nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) is presented. A combination of 23Na, 29Si, and 13C magic angle spinning with and without cross polarization to 1H nuclei have been used to investigate the reaction of sodium silicide (NaSi) with silicon tetrachloride (SiCl4) followed… CONTINUE READING
