AbstractWe have analyzed the structures of two medium-sized thiolate-protected gold nanoparticles (RS-AuNPs) Au-40(SR)(24) and Au-52(SR)(32) and identified the distinct structural features in their Au kernels [Sci. Adv., 2015, 1, e1500425]. We find that both Au kernels of the Au-40(SR)(24) and Au-52(SR)(32) nanoclusters can be classified as interpenetrating cuboctahedra. Simulated X-ray diffraction patterns of the RS-AuNPs with the cuboctahedral kernel are collected and then compared with the X-ray diffraction patterns of the RS-AuNPs of two other prevailing Au-kernels identified from previous experiments, namely the Ino-decahedral kernel and icosahedral kernel. The distinct X-ray diffraction patterns of RS-AuNPs with the three different types of Au-kernels can be utilized as signature features for future studies of structures of RS-AuNPs. Moreover, the simulated UV/Vis absorption spectra and Kohn-Sham orbital energy-level diagrams are obtained for the Au-40(SR)(24) and Au-52(SR)(32), on the basis of time-dependent density functional theory computation. The extrapolated optical band-edges of Au-40(SR)(24) and Au-52(SR)(32) are 1.1 eV and 1.25 eV, respectively. The feature peaks in the UV/Vis absorption spectra of the two clusters can be attributed to the d -> sp electronic transition. Lastly, the catalytic activities of the Au-40(SR)(24) and Au-52(SR)(32) are examined using CO oxidation as a probe. Both medium-sized thiolate-protected gold clusters can serve as effective stand-alone nanocatalysts.
