Ligand Mediated Nanocluster Formation with Classical and Autocatalytic Growth
2019-08-14T12:58:18Z (GMT) by
We describe a kinetic model of ligand-mediated nanocluster (diameter < 2 nm) formation. We investigate two growth pathways: classical single-monomer addition, and autocatalytic growth. We compare our results to some relevant experiments and we discuss and generally describe the optimal conditions for "bottom up" nanocluster synthesis.
