Tailor-made N-heterocyclic carbenes for nanoparticle stabilization

Author affiliations

Abstract

N-heterocyclic carbenes (NHCs) represent a leading class of ligands in organometallic chemistry, but have been rarely exploited as stabilizers for metal nanoparticles (NPs). We report the first example of NHC stabilized Pd-NPs that demonstrate long term stability. These NHC Pd-NPs were synthesized by a facile ligand exchange protocol using rationally designed long chained NHCs (LC-NHCs). Furthermore, we demonstrate that the surface modification of Pd-NPs results in significant chemoselectivity in a model reaction.
