Silicon half cell potential

  1. Feb 15, 2008 #1
    I've looked everywhere. Can someone tell me if there is a half cell potential for silicon?

    Si(0) ---> Si(4+) + 4e

    Every list of the galvanic series on the web that I have seen has no data for silicon.

    Try checking in an old inorganic textbook, or a handbook of physics and chemistry.

    Interesting; I tried my own advice, looking in an old handbook, but found no datum for that silicon ion. Maybe a newer handbook might have something?
