Synthesis and Characterization of Metal Phosphide Films from Single-Source Molecular Precursors243rd ACS National Meeting & Exposition (2012)
The single-source molecular precursors H<sub>2</sub>Fe<sub>3</sub>(CO)<sub>9</sub>PR (R = <sup>t</sup>Bu or Ph) have been used to prepare ferromagnetic Fe<sub>3</sub>P films. These films were prepared using a simple, homebuilt, low-pressure MOCVD apparatus. The Fe<sub>3</sub>P films have been studied using a variety of analytical techniques, and the structural, spectroscopic, and magnetic data obtained from the films is in excellent agreement with data obtained from pure bulk Fe<sub>3</sub>P. In a similar manner, the single-source precursor FeMn(CO)<sub>8</sub>(m-PH<sub>2</sub>) has been used to prepare heterobimetallic films containing iron, manganese, and phosphorus. Synthetic and analytical details will be presented.
