Synthesis, Properties, and Derivatization of Poly(dihydrogermane): A Germanium-Based Polyethylene Analogue

Polygermanes are germanium-based analogues of polyolefins and possess polymer backbones made up catenated Ge atoms. Within the current contribution we report the preparation of a germanium polyethylene analogue, polydihydrogermane (GeH2)n, by way of two simple approaches that contain topotactic deintercalation of Ca ions from the CaGe Zintl section. The ensuing (GeH2)n possesses morphologically dependent chemical … Read more

A plasmon-based nanoruler to probe the mechanical properties of synthetic and biogenic nanosized lipid vesicles
