- ... This critical review deals with the history of Au₅₅(PPh₃)₁₂Cl₆ and its derivatives from the very beginning in 1981 to date. Au₅₅ clusters obtain their special interest from their ultimate size and their ideal cuboctahedral structure. They are part of the family of so-called full-shell clusters, particles with perfectly completed geometries, also represented by icosahedral Au₁₃ clusters. Bare as we ...
