Abstract

Metal nanoparticles have attracted intense interest due to their remarkable optical, catalytic, and electronic properties. The passivating ligands have a significant impact on the physical properties of the particle in addition to stabilizing the metal core. In this work, the binding energies, structures, and changes in electron density are assessed for the adsorption of ligands such as PH3 and NH3 to a representative Au20 cluster. Time-dependent density functional theory is employed to examine the effects of passivating ligands on the optical absorption of the metal particle.
