Toward green metallurgy: low-temperature solution synthesis of bulk-scale intermetallic compounds in edible plant and seed oils

Author affiliations

Abstract

Binary intermetallic compounds have been synthesized in edible plant and seed oils through the reaction of molten metal dispersions of low-melting p-block metals with late transition metal powders. Specifically, apricot kernel, almond, safflower, and canola oils have been used to synthesize FeSn2, Ni3Sn4, CoSn3, CoGa3, Cu6Sn5, and Bi3Ni. This low-temperature strategy yields bulk-scale products that are highly crystalline, and the solvents used to synthesize them can be re-used several times.
