From boron clusters to gold clusters: new label-free colorimetric sensors

Author affiliations

Abstract

A fundamental boron cluster, [closo-B12H12]2−, mainly known as an inert agent for boron neutron capture therapy, can also serve as a bi-functional reductant and a capping agent for the formation of monodispersed size-controlled gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) under mild reaction conditions. The obtained AuNPs remained thermo-dynamically stable over 3 months, and exhibited high performance in phase transfer and sensing of heavy metal ions.
