Regioselective placement of alkanethiolate domains on tetrahedral and octahedral gold nanocrystals Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Electrostatically stabilized monolayer shells of metal-oxide cluster anions (polyoxometalates, or POMs) on the surfaces of ca. 8 nm tetrahedral and octahedral gold nanocrystals regioselectively direct water-soluble alkanethiolate ligands to the corners and edges of the gold polyhedra.
