Conformation of Capping Ligands on Nanoplates: Facet-Edge-Induced Disorder and Self-Assembly-Related Ordering Revealed by Sum Frequency Generation Spectroscopy.


Surface-curvature-amplified conformational disorder in alkyl capping ligands has been observed previously when the nanoparticle radii approach the ligand length. Herein, sum frequency generation studies on oleic-acid-capped nanoplates show that even on faceted surfaces with dimensions tens of times greater than the ligand length a significant proportion of… (More)
