Abstract

Water-soluble gold nanoparticles (3.2 nm diameter) capped with thiolated γ-cyclodextrin hosts form large network aggregates (∼300 nm) in the presence of C60 fullerene molecules. This aggregation phenomenon is driven by the formation of inclusion complexes between two cyclodextrins - attached to different nanoparticles - and one molecule of C60.
