Abstract

This paper describes the preparation of alkyl terminated silicon nanoparticles that are air and moisture stable by the oxidation of magnesium silicide with bromine and then the subsequent termination with an alkyl Grignard reagent. The nanoparticles have been characterized by transmission electron microscopy (TEM), high-resolution TEM (HRTEM), energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS), Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy, and fluorescence spectroscopy.
