Abstract:

The efficient preparation of a new polymeric gallium imide, GaNH32, from the reaction between GaNMe232 and NH3 at ambient temperatures is described. The gallium imide precursor is shown by TEM and XRD studies to yield, upon pyroysis, a rare cubichexagonal variety of gallium nitride, GaN. Some control over the average particle size of GaN in the nanosized region is achieved by application of various pyrolysis schemes.
