Mechanochemical Synthesis of Mg2Si and Related Compounds and Alloys

Tech ID: 23699 / UC Case 2011-721-0


Professor Kaner and colleagues have developed methods to synthesize substantially phase pure compounds of magnesium silicide and related alloys. The phase purity achieved by this method is unprecedented, and the yielded products are suitable to be used as thermoelectric materials in the mid- to high-temperature range (400 K to 800 K).
