Caption

A molecular illustration of silicene, a two-dimensional allotrope of silicon with structural similarities to graphene. However, silicon molecules in silicene form a chair-like conformation, resulting a honeycomb structure composed of distorted hexagonal rings. The additional kinks and ridges in silicene also make it very reactive with its environment, allowing it to chemically bond with surrounding materials. This reactivity makes it especially difficult to produce silicene, though studies have shown that sheets of silicene can be grown on crystalline silver.
