Towards atomically precise luminescent Ag2S clusters separable by thin layer chromatography

Author affiliations

Abstract

Here, we report the synthesis of monolayer protected, luminescent and atomically precise silver sulfide (Ag2S) clusters. Cluster formation was studied by varying the conditions of the reaction. Matrix assisted laser desorption ionization mass spectrometry (MALDI MS) was used to monitor the growth of clusters to nanoparticles (NPs). Clusters of different nuclearity were obtained at a lower temperature, and were efficiently separated by thin layer chromatography (TLC). One of the clusters was assigned as Ag158S79(SBB)32, where SBB is 4-tert-butylbenzyl mercaptan.
