Synthesis of silylenes and silylene-iron complexes for their application in the preparation of FeSi nano-objects

Iron silicides FeSix nano-objects are ideal candidates to achieve high performance devices for the next generation of microelectronics. However, the lack of cost-effective and efficient synthetic approaches (required temperature > 500°C, low quantity production…) considerably limits the scope of applications. This projects aims at developing a low-cost solution-based strategies that relies on the design of highly reactive precursors in order to prepare FeSix nano-objects featuring controlled physical properties by thermolysis in solution.
In the course of this project, we will develop the design and the synthesis of highly reactive molecular species (silylenes and silylene-iron complexes) specifically engineered to prepare perfectly controlled features.

This research is conducted in frame of the ANR research program in the Laboratoire Hétérochimie Fondamentale et Appliquée LHFA (University of Toulouse) in collaboration with the Laboratoire de Physique et Chimie des Nano-Objets LPCNO (INSA – Toulouse)

Eligibility criteria

The candidate must have a solid background in molecular chemistry (organic and organometallic chemistry). Good skill in manipulations with highly reactive molecules (air-sensitive complexes) will also be required.
