Although silver nanoparticles are of great fundamental and practical interest, only one structure has been determined thus far: M4Ag44(SPh)30, where M is a monocation, and SPh is an aromatic thiolate ligand. This is in part due to the fact that no other molecular silver nanoparticles have been synthesized with aromatic thiolate ligands. Here we report the(More)
Fathoming the principles underpinning the structures of monolayer-coated molecular metal nanoparticles remains an enduring challenge. Notwithstanding recent x-ray determinations, coveted veritable de novo structural predictions are scarce. Building on recent syntheses and de novo structure predictions of M3Au x Ag17-x (TBBT)12, where M is a countercation, x(More)
M 4 Ag 44 (p-MBA) 30 molecular nanoparticles, where M is an alkali metal, have recently been shown to have exceptional stability, which confers unique traits to this molecule. In particular, the synthesis is straightforward, produces a truly single-sized molecular product, and has a quantitative yield. Here we describe in detail the results of experimental(More)
