Regioselective thiocyanation of corroles and the synthesis of gold nanoparticle–corrole assemblies

Author affiliations

Abstract

Herein we demonstrate a synthetic protocol for the regioselective thiocyanation of corroles. To the best of our knowledge, thiocyanato appended corrole has never been reported earlier. The resulting thiocyanato appended corrole turned out to be a good corrole based precursor for the facile synthesis of thiol protected gold nanoparticles (Au NPs). The ligand system acts as a good bidentate framework and passivates the gold surface. A strong electronic interaction between the corrole and the gold nanoparticles is manifested by their unique photo physical properties and it also confirms that the binding through β-substitutions has a more pronounced effect even though the corrole rings are face-off to the gold surface.
