The synthesis and structure of the [PdAu13(PPh3)3(SR)7]+ nanocluster

Author affiliations

Abstract

Metal alloy nanoclusters have attracted increasing attention due to the synergistic effect of the foreign atoms. For the first time the synthesis and crystal structure of the [PdAu13(PPh3)3(SR)7]+ nanocluster is reported. The crystal structure of the nanocluster was determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction. The [PdAu13(PPh3)3(SR)7]+ nanocluster has a concave polyhedron Au9Pd kernel, which looks like a girl dancing ballet. The structure shows that [PdAu13(PPh3)3(SR)7]+ has an open shell. Meanwhile, we also carried out ultraviolet-visible (Uv-vis) absorption spectroscopy and fluorescence spectroscopy to study the optical properties of the [PdAu13(PPh3)3(SR)7]+ nanocluster.
