Chemical Routes to Colloidal Chalcogenide Nanosheets
This project began with an emphasis on developing new low-temperature synthetic routes to intermetallic alloys in order to advance the synthesis and processing science of superconducting materials, as well as to potentially discover new materials that would be inaccessible using more traditional higher-temperature methods. Our initial target materials, chosen as model systems for developing new low-temperature solution-based synthetic platforms, were based on well known superconducting alloys, including Nb3M (M = Ga, Ge, Sn), Bi-M (M = In, Cu), and MgCNi3. Several key, fundamental synthetic challenges that underpinned the formation of these materials using solution chemistry routes were identified and investigated.
