Preparation, size separation and chiroptical properties of chiral gold nanoparticles

Gautier, Cyrille ; Bürgi, T. (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2008 ; Th.1993.

The knowledge of surface-molecule interactions is fundamental in order to understand and to take advantage of the physicochemical properties of organic-inorganic hybrid materials. How does a surface react when a molecule adsorbs? How does the molecule adsorb? What is the conformation of the molecule on the surface? This thesis is intended to give some insight on these phenomena. Monolayer...

Vibrational circular dichroism of N-acetyl-L-cysteine protected gold nanoparticles

Gautier, Cyrille ; Bürgi, Thomas

In: Chemical Communications, 2005, p. 5393 - 5395

Vibrational circular dichroism is used to determine the conformation of a thiol adsorbed on gold nanoparticles.
