Silicon adapts in the predominant α modification the cubic diamond structure that significantly limits solar cells efficiency. A surprisingly simple way allows for rebuilding new three-dimensional structures of tetrel elements. For article see: L.-A. Jantke, A. J. Karttunen, T.... [mehr]

Zwitterionic Molecules Comprising Zintl Clusters For the first time the introduction of phosphine moieties at tetrel Zintl clusters was achieved and a series of novel mixed-functionalized cluster compounds bearing phosphine substituents is presented. Besides providing a novel... [mehr]

π–complex or intermetalloid cluster? Zn atoms serve for both. Either covalent coupling of two Zn vertex atoms or Lewis-acid Lewis-base interactions leads to novel intermetalloid clusters with Zn. The reactions of Zn(I) compounds of the type Zn2L2 with solutions of the Zintl... [mehr]

The new Li-Si-P ternary phase compounds Li8SiP4 and Li2SiP2 are the starting point of a large compound class. Both compounds form structures based on SiP4 tetrahedral building blocks and reveal a significant lithium ion mobility. The compounds were characterized by XRD and... [mehr]

[Ge2]4– Dumbbell with Very Short Ge-Ge Distances in the Zintl Phase Li3NaGe2 – A Solid State Equivalent to Molecular O2 L. M. Scherf, A. J. Karttunen, O. Pecher, P. C. M. M. Magusin, C. P. Grey, T. F. Fässler Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., 2015, 55, 1075–1079. DOI:... [mehr]

Nanostructured Group 14 semiconductors attract significant attention because of a broad range of potential applications. We describe a general and controllable fabrication method for Ge nanomorphologies with tunable composition using the controlled reaction of [Ge9]4− Zintl... [mehr]
