Bidentate Phosphine-Assisted Synthesis of an All-Alkynyl-Protected Ag74 Nanocluster.


Determining the total structure of metal nanoparticles is vital to understand their properties. In this work, the first all-alkynyl-protected Ag nanocluster, Ag74(C≡CPh)44, was synthesized and structurally characterized by single crystal diffraction. Ag atoms are arranged in a Ag4@Ag22@Ag48 three shell structure and all 44 phenylethynyl ligands coordinated… (More)
