"Figure Presented" Stolen identity: The molecular geometries of a series of cross-linkers that bear between one and four pyridyl moieties are expressed in the optical properties of AuNP assemblies (see picture). TEM analysis indicates that the molecular-level structural differences of the cross-linkers are also transferred at the submicrometer level in the formation of the AuNP assemblies.
