Bimetallic core-shell nanostructures hold great promise in elucidating the bimetallic synergism. However, it remains a challenge to construct atomically precise core-shell with high-valence active metals on the gold surface. In this work, we report the total structure of a [Au Cd (SR) ] core-shell nanocluster and multiple implications. Single crystal X-ray diffraction (SCXRD) reveals that the structure possesses a two-shelled Au @Au core and a closed cadmium shell of Cd , and the core-shell structure is then protected by 52 thiolate (-SR) ligands. The composition of the nanocluster is further confirmed by electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS). A catalytic test for styrene oxidation and a comparison with relevant nanoclusters reveal the surface effect on the catalytic activity and selectivity.
