Title: Polymeric gamma-MgCl2 Nanoribbons

Abstract

{delta}-MgCl{sub 2} has relevant applications in the field of electrochemical energy storage and Ziegler-Natta catalysis. Here, we clarify the short-range structural peculiarities that make the disordered phase {delta}-MgCl{sub 2} extremely chemically active relative to the higher lattice energy phases, {alpha}-MgCl{sub 2} and {beta}-MgCl{sub 2}. X-ray diffraction (XRD), X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) results are included. These findings, demonstrate the existence of [MgCl{sub 2}]{sub n} nanoribbons and active nanosurfaces in {delta}-MgCl{sub 2} and provide new insight about the nature of the bonding in the allotropic forms of MgCl{sub 2}.
