Abstract

We have recently described the synthesis and characterization of amino-functionalized N-heterocyclic carbene complexes of silver(I), Ag(I)-NHCs, using the Boc-protected and deprotected 1-(2-aminoethyl)-3-methyl imidazolium salts [NH2(CH2)2ImMe]X, [1]X (X = I, PF6) as carbene precursors [1]. We are now presenting the preparation of a new gold(III)-alkylamino imidazolium aurate salt [Cl3AuNH2(CH2)2ImMe)][AuCl4] (2). Demonstrating the great versatility of the amino-functionalized imidazolium salts, such compound is an useful precursor for the preparation of gold nanoparticle (AuNPs) films via the layer-by-layer (LBL) assembly method [2]. Assembling appropriate polyelectrolytes such as poly(ethyleneimine) (PEI) on Indium Tin Oxide Glasses (ITO) a monolayer film of 2 can be easily grafted on the surface and after subsequent reduction, well controlled, in size and distribution, immobilized AuNPs can be generated. The morphology of the AuNPs layers was investigated by using AFM and SEM microscopy and X-ray diffraction (XRD). References [1] L. Busetto, M.C. Cassani, C. Femoni, A. Macchioni, R. Mazzoni, D.
