Mechanisms for Hydrolysis of Silicon Nanomembranes as Used in Bioresorbable Electronics
L Yin and AB Farimani and K Min and N Vishal and J Lam and YK Lee and NR Aluru and JA Rogers, ADVANCED MATERIALS, 27, 1857-+ (2015).
Systematic experimental and theoretical studies of the hydrolysis of silicon nano membranes at near-neutral pH conditions reveal the roles of anion concentration and temperature. An empirical model captures the dependence of the dissolution rates on key factors, and atomic-level simulations provide insights into the underlying chemistry.
