Unexpected structural transformation into noria-like Ag13 metal clusters and a copper-doping induced boost in photoluminescence

Author affiliations

Abstract

Polynuclear silver clusters are described that unexpectedly transform from cyclic trinuclear complexes (CTCs) upon reacting with σ-donating phenylacetylene, featuring a noria-like conformation. The introduction of foreign copper ions leads to isomorphic bimetallic Ag/Cu clusters, with a boost in the photoluminescence quantum yield relative to the original silver clusters.
