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.
