Solid-state phase transformations in solution: templated conversion of nanoscale nickel phosphides

Author affiliations

Abstract

Conversion of Ni12P5 nanoparticles to Ni2P is demonstrated to occur via a solid-state, rather than a solution dissolution, process. The templated transformation is employed to make monodisperse hollow or solid particles of the catalytically active phase Ni2P with surface areas of ∼17 m2 g−1.
