In so doing, it causes electron density to "hop" to the outside silicon atom, creating a high-energy dangling bond.

To detect the spin of a single electron, Rugar and several colleagues prepared a piece of quartz with a smattering of so-called dangling bonds.
But if you took it apart and put hydrogen atoms on the dangling bonds to stabilize it, you'd have a chemical compound that we call a buckybowl.
They then put hydrogen atoms on the ends of the tubule so the dangling bonds of the carbons there would not latch onto any molecule that came near them.
Thus, when 60 to 600 carbon atoms link up, the dangling bonds encourage the formation of hollow fullerenes, Kroto says.
These dangling bonds allow the electrons to return to their original state without emitting light, so the luminescence disappears, says Collins.
One element of the sheet forms a pentagon instead of a hexagon, and the sheet curves to allow two of the dangling bonds to attach to each other (see illustration).
