A Preparative-Scale Reaction Using Platinum Clusters With a Single-Digit Atomicity Realized

Figure (A) shows the chemical structure of the complexes, (B) shows the chromatogram of the HPLC separation with size exclusion columns, (C) shows the MALDI-TOF-mass spectra of the isolated platinum complexes measured with DCTB matrix, and (D) shows the optimized geometric structures with platinum as blue, sulfur as yellow, and α-carbon atoms in grey.

Subnanometer noble-metal clusters have been studied previously for these possibilities in catalytic applications. For example, it is known that platinum is used as a catalyst for a fuel cell, which is conductive and exhibits magnetism. Platinum is indispensable as a material for the next-generation energy grid,
