The increasing demand of gallium based materials (e.g. GaAs, GaP, GaN, etc) for micro-electronic devices (e.g. optoelectronic devices, solar panels) has been a driving force for the preparation of organogallium compounds in a convenient manner.
Special stoichiometric magnesium-gallium alloys are versatile reagents used for the synthesis of a range of organogallium compounds.
Triorganogallium compounds are useful in organometallic chemistry, catalysis and in materials science for gallium based semiconductors of gallium based semiconductor materials (e.g. GaAs, GaN, GaP, GaSb, InGaAs, InGaN, AlGaInP, InGaP and AlInGaNP) via metalorganic vapour phase epitaxy (MOVPE
With special emphasis of the Government of India on setting semiconductor device manufacturing firms in India, the demand for indigenously sourced raw materials is expected to rise.
