Fluorescence resonance energy transfer between the metal core and the ligand in Au25SG18 (SG-glutathione thiolate) is demonstrated using dansyl chromophores attached to the cluster core through glutathione linkers. The dansyl chromophore functionalization of the cluster has been carried out by two different routes. Efficient energy transfer from the dansyl(More)
We have prepared and characterized a new set of highly fluorescent gold nanoclusters (AuNCs) using one-step aqueous reduction of a gold precursor in the presence of bidentate ligands made of lipoic acid anchoring groups, appended with either a poly(ethylene glycol) short chain or a zwitterion group. The AuNCs fluoresce in the red to near-infrared region of(More)
A novel interfacial route has been developed for the synthesis of a bright-red-emitting new subnanocluster, Au(23), by the core etching of a widely explored and more stable cluster, Au(25)SG(18) (in which SG is glutathione thiolate). A slight modification of this procedure results in the formation of two other known subnanoclusters, Au(22) and Au(33).(More)
We have used one phase growth reaction to prepare a series of silver nanoparticles (NPs) and luminescent nanoclusters (NCs) using sodium borohydride (NaBH(4)) reduction of silver nitrate in the presence of molecular scale ligands made of polyethylene glycol (PEG) appended with lipoic acid (LA) groups at one end and reactive (-COOH/-NH(2)) or inert (-OCH(3))(More)
Exerting control over the near-infrared (NIR) plasmonic response of nanosized metals and semiconductors can facilitate access to unexplored phenomena and applications. Here we combine electrostatic self-assembly and Cd(2+)/Cu(+) cation exchange to obtain an anisotropic core-shell nanoparticle cluster (NPC) whose optical properties stem from two dissimilar(More)
