[Au25(SR)18]2(2-): a noble metal cluster dimer in the gas phase.


We present the first example of dimer formation in the monolayer protected atomically precise cluster system, Au25(SR)18, using ion mobility mass spectrometry. These transient species are shown to be important in explaining chemical reactivity between clusters.
