Synthesis of Sinter-Resistant Au@Silica Catalysts Derived from Au25 Clusters
Gold clusters exhibit remarkable catalytic activity for many reactions such as carbon monoxide oxidation, alcohol, alkene, and hydrocarbon oxidations, and reduction reactions at low temperatures. However, several previous ...
Following the Thermal Activation of Au25(SR)18 Clusters for Catalysis by X-Ray Absorption Spectroscopy
(American Chemical Society, 2013)
We show the thermal activation of phenylethanethiolate (L = SC8H9) and hexanethiolate (L = SC6H13) Au25L18 monolayer protected clusters (MPCs) on carbon black supports, followed by characterization with extended X-ray ...
