Abstract

The solution preparation of Ge nanoparticles with chemically tailored surfaces was discussed. The metathesis of the Zintl salts NaGe, KGe and Mg2Ge with GeCl4 in boiling glymes was used to prepare Ge nanoparticles. Results showed that the reaction between Mg2Ge and GeCl4 in refluxing diglyme produces Ge nanoparticles in high yields and surface of these particles may be terminated using Grignard reagents.
