Title: Methods and use of manipulating Au25 charge state

Abstract

Methods for manipulating charge states of Au nanoparticles and uses for the corresponding nanoparticles are described. A preferred embodiment comprises the following steps: 1) combining at least one Au nanocluster with at least one electron accepting molecule in the presence of an excess amount of counter ion; and 2) exposing the nanocluster, electron acceptor and counter ion mixture to light creating Au+ nanoclusters. In one or more embodiments, an additional step of depositing the Au+ nanoclusters onto a catalyst support is performed.
