Abstract

Ligation of 2,6-diphenylbenzenethiol (DppSH) onto Au clusters stabilized by poly(N-vinyl-2-pyrrolidone) and subsequent core etching yielded a single cluster Au25(SDpp)11. High-energy X-ray diffraction measurement showed that Au25 constitutes a core in Au25(SDpp)11. We propose a bi-icosahedral Au25 core whose 22 Au surface atoms are capped directly by 11 bulky arenethiolates.
