Mechanically interlocked gold and silver nanoparticles using metallosupramolecular catenane chemistry

Abstract

We have employed the toolbox of metallosupramolecular chemistry to mechanically interlock gold and silver nanoparticles. A specifically designed PEGthiol-functionalized bis(phenanthroline)copper(I) complex acts to ‘catenate’ the nanoparticles. The interlocked assemblies were characterised by three complementary techniques: DLS, SERS and TEM.
