Water-Dispersed Hydrophobic Au Nanocrystal Assemblies with a Plasmon Fingerprint

Hydrophobic Au nanocrystal assemblies (both ordered and amorphous) were dispersed in aqueous solution via the assistance of lipid vesicles. The intertwine between vesicles and Au assemblies was made possible through a careful selection of the length of alkyl chains on Au nanocrystals. Extinction spectra of Au assemblies showed two peaks that were assigned to a scattering mode that red-shifted with increasing the assembly size and an absorption mode associated with localized surface plasmon, that was independent of their size. This plasmon fingerprint could be used as a probe for investigating the optical properties of such assemblies. Our water-soluble assemblies enable exploring a variety of potential applications including solar energy and biomedicine.
