Abstract

A brief historical overview on Zintl phases is provided and an introduction to the Zintl concept is given. This group's strategies for the synthesis of new solid phases and new forms of materials prepared by means of solution methods are discussed. An approach to synthesis of transition metal Zintl phases is outlined and our discovery of colossal magnetoresistance (CMR) in EU14MnSb11 is presented. Also, the use of Zintl phases to produce nanocrystals of Si and Ge is presented. FTIR spectroscopy of Ge nanocrystals provides evidence that these nanocrystals can be terminated with alkyl groups.
