Silyl ether passivation of silicon quantum dots via catalytic dehydrocoupling reactions

Meredith Sharps, Tianlei Zhou & Alan Sellinger
Silicon quantum dots (SiQD) have been researched as potential materials for use in solar cells, photovoltaic devices, organic light emitting diodes, luminescent markers for biological imaging, and ink-jet printable displays. Passivation of the SiQDs with organic ligands can be used to protect the dots from oxidation, improve solubility, and stabilize luminescence by tuning the distance of the electronic band gap. Passivating the dots with silyl ethers is not a new process, but the state-of-the-art method...
