Abbie Rubletz


Department of Chemistry, University of Alberta

Abbie Rubletz is a senior undergraduate student in the honors chemistry program at the University of Alberta. Her work with the Veinot research group has involved investigating methods of synthesizing "large" (d > 75 nm) silicon nanoparticles and understanding the systems from which they evolve. More specifically, her recent interests concern anomalous nanoparticle evolution from hydrogen silsesquioxane (HSQ)-derived systems. Abbie is passionate about engaging undergraduates and promoting student research involvement, having also served as President and Vice President of Finance of the undergraduate Chemistry Students' Association on campus. When not in the lab, she enjoys spending time with her cat, Boo, and doing puzzles.

Talk Description

Assembling the Silicon Nanoparticle Puzzle: Piecing Together the Anomalous High-Temperature Behaviour of Hydrogen Silsesquioxane.

The thermally induced disproportionation of hydrogen silsesquioxane (HSQ) is a well-known and reproducible method of synthesizing silicon nanoparticles. However, recent efforts to extend this process to higher temperatures have uncovered a discrete region of anomalous nanoparticle evolution. As this behaviour is unexplained, and unexplainable, at the current level of understanding of this system, further research is required to understand this phenomenon. Our recent work has sought to quantify the boundaries of this region and propose an alternative mechanism of silicon nanoparticle evolution from HSQ.
