Got LiZnP? Solution phase synthesis of filled tetrahedral semiconductors in the nanoregime
We report the synthesis and characterization of nanocrystalline LiZnP. The reaction proceeds through a zinc metal intermediate followed by rapid incorporation of lithium and phosphorus. We demonstrate flexibility in the selection of Li, Zn, and P precursors, as well as extension of this method to other half-Heusler phases.
