Abstract

Nanocrystalline silicon with hydrogen on the surface has been synthesized. The effect of the reaction conditions on size, crystallinity, and the amount of hydrogen has been explored. FTIR spectroscopy, solid state 1H NMR and 29Si CP MAS NMR confirm the presence of hydrogen on the surface of the as prepared nanoparticles. TG/DSC measurements reveal that upon heating in an argon atmosphere, these nanocrystalline materials lose weight. The nature of hydrogen and characterization of these materials will be presented.
