Abstract

Striped catalysts: The effect of composition and structure on the catalytic efficiency of gold nanoparticles protected by a monolayer composed of two types of ligands differing in length (see picture) is reported. By diluting catalytically active ligand molecules with simple catalytically inactive molecules the catalytic efficiency of the particles is enhanced.
