  • Gold nanomolecules with a precise number of gold atoms and ligands have promise for catalytic, optical, and biomedical applications. For practical applications, it is essential to develop synthetic protocols to prepare monodisperse gold nanomolecules. A typical synthesis yields a number of nanomolecules with discrete numbers of core atoms. Thermochemical treatment in the presence of excess thiol, etching, is known to narrow down the number of discrete nanomolecules, by selective degradation of… CONTINUE READING
