Abstract

Silicon Nanoparticles are of interests for a variety of applications, from thermoelectrics to photovoltaics. This research group has been exploring various synthetic routes to prepare organically capped Si nanoparticles from reactive Zintl phases such as NaSi. Doping NaSi with various main group and transition elements provides more complex nanoparticles. Synthesis and characterization of the NaSi starting material will be presented along with the synthesis and characterization of the resulting nanoparticles.
