One-pot synthesis of functionalized germanium nanocrystals from a single source precursor

Author affiliations

Abstract

One-pot syntheses of surface functionalized germanium nanocrystals (GeNCs) based upon traditional hot injection and microwave-assisted heating of a Ge(II) dihydride single source precursor have been developed. The reported procedures offer in situ hydrogermylation-based covalent attachment of alkene/alkyne derived surface moieties that give access to hydrophobic or hydrophilic GeNCs.
