From Grignard's reagents to well-defined Mg nanostructures: distinctive electrochemical and solution reduction routes. Academic Article uri icon


  • Anisotropic Mg nanowires have been successfully prepared by electrocrystallization of Grignard's reagents thought to proceed via a modified faces, steps, and kinks (FSK) mechanism. Mg nanoparticles with roughly hexagonal shapes have also been obtained via chemical reduction of the same Grignard's reagents.
