A novel geometric structure of nanocluster with irregular kernel: Ag30Cu14(TPP)4(SR)28
Here, we report a bi-ligand protected bimetallic nanocluster Ag30Cu14(TPP)4(SR)28. It’s composed of an Ag27 kernel and Ag3Cu14(TPP)4(SR)28 shell. Typically, the metal atoms are arranged irregularly. Both the core and shell exhibit the characteristics of C2-symmetry.
