Fluorescent or not? Size-dependent fluorescence switching for polymer-stabilized gold clusters in the 1.1–1.7 nm size range

Author affiliations

Abstract

The synthesis of fluorescent water-soluble gold nanoparticles by the reduction of a gold salt in the presence of a designed polymer ligand is described, the size and fluorescence of the particles being controlled by the polymer to gold ratio; the most fluorescent nanomaterial has a 3% quantum yield, a 1.1 nm gold core and a 6.9 nm hydrodynamic radius.
