Abstract

We synthesized a mixture of Au24-nCunPd(SC12H25)18 (n = 0-3) and Au25-nCun(SC12H25)18 (n = 0-7) and compared their stability. The results showed that, in a cluster containing one Cu atom, the presence of Pd is effective in improving the cluster stability. Conversely, the presence of Pd has different effects depending on the number of Cu atoms in the cluster: cluster formation was inhibited for clusters containing four or more Cu atoms.
