A phenylethanethiolate-protected Pd(2)Au(36)(SC(2)H(4)Ph)(24) cluster, which is a two-Pd atom-doped cluster of the well studied magic gold cluster Au(38)(SC(2)H(4)Ph)(24), was synthesized in high purity and its stability was investigated. The results demonstrate that Pd(2)Au(36)(SC(2)H(4)Ph)(24) is more stable than Au(38)(SC(2)H(4)Ph)(24) against… CONTINUE READING
