Sonochemical synthesis of iron phosphide.


The sonochemical reaction of Fe(CO)5 and triethylphosphine has been found to produce solid amorphous iron phosphide of composition FeP. The resulting compound was characterized by elemental microanalysis, scanning electron microscopy, energy-dispersive X-ray analysis, and Debye-Scherrer powder X-ray diffraction. X-ray powder patterns were obtained after the… (More)
