Ligand stabilized water soluble Pt nanoclusters were synthesized and characterized through electrospray ionization mass spectrometry. Glutathione was used as the ligand, and Pt5(SG)10, and Pt6(SG)12 clusters were synthesized. Theoretical investigations found that these clusters do not possess a metal core, but rather are most stable in a ring structure. The clusters are stabilized through the thiol ligands forming a square planar structure around each Pt atom to form a ring. The structural elucidation was confirmed through UV/Vis and IR spectroscopy.
