Figure 3a. Schematic illustration of solvent-induced AIE properties of oligomeric Au(I)–thiolate complexes.
Figure 4. Schematic of synthesis of highly luminescent Au(0)@Au(I)–thiolate NCs. X in the Au(I)–X complexes can be any non-thiolate functional group in the reaction mixture.
Figure 8. Schematic illustration of the structures of (ii) our luminescent Au NCs with AIE and (i) conventional Au–thiolate NCs with short Au(I)–thiolate motifs.
