Connecting Ligand Binding Preferences of Atomically Precise Clusters with Larger Nanoparticles

by Timothy Lou

Gold nano-systems are an interesting field of research due to their unique electronic and optical properties that have applications in areas ranging from photothermal treatment to catalysis to chemical sensing. This project aims to link ligand preferences and ligand exchange mechanisms observed in well-characterized gold nanoclusters to larger metallic gold nanoparticles through nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy.
