Abstract

A key to the ultimate technological applications of core-shell nanoparticle materials is the understanding of the structure-property correlation. This work focuses on the characterizations of the structural properties for composite thin films derived from gold nanoparticles and thiolates using infrared reflectance spectroscopic (IRS) and electron spin resonance (ESR) techniques. IRS provides information on molecular packing and ordering of the shell components in the films, which relates to the molecular interactions and interfacial reactivities. ESR probes the conduction electron spin resonance properties of the nanosized cores, which can be correlated with the network or environmental electronic effects on the crystal cores. Results are discussed in terms of their correlation with the nanoparticle core sizes and the organic shell functionality.
