Ag188-S)(p-TBBT)16(PPh3)8: symmetry breaking induced by the core to generate chirality

Author affiliations

Abstract

A chiral silver–sulfur nanocluster with a μ8-S inside, Ag188-S)(p-TBBT)16(PPh3)8, was successfully synthesized and characterized. This nanocluster is composed of a crown-like Ag8S core and an Ag10S16P8 meso-shell. The presence of the core induces symmetry breaking of the nanocluster from S8 to C4, and therefore endows the cluster with chirality.
