Ligand-protected Au4Ru2 and Au5Ru2 nanoclusters: distinct structures and implications for site-cooperation catalysis

Author affiliations

Abstract

We report two ligand-protected Au4Ru2 and Au5Ru2 nanoclusters with distinct atomic-packing modes and electronic structures, both of which act as ideal model catalysts for identifying the catalytically active sites of catalysts on the nanoclusters. Au5Ru2 exhibits superior catalytic performances to Au4Ru2 for N-methylation of N-methylaniline to N-methylformanili, which is likely due to the site-cooperation catalysis of Au5Ru2.
