The synthetic procedure consists of adding the alkenethiol to the preformed gold nanoparticles stabilized by THCP (Tetrakis (hydroxymethyl)phosphonium chloride). They found a decrease in cluster size upon increasing the size of the thiol capping agent used. Clusters displayed fluorescence emission between 500 and 620 nm, with the highest QY obtained using 11-mercaptoundecanoic acid.

They used 11-mercaptoundecanoic acid (11-MUA) to react with the asprepared nanoparticles to prepare wavelength-tunable luminescent 11-MUA–Au clusters and 11-MUA–Au/Ag clusters, respectively. Au and Ag/Ag clusters exhibit a number of attractive optical properties: tunable luminescence wavelengths (456–640 nm), long lifetimes (4250 ns), and large Stokes shifts (4100 nm). 11 reported the synthesis of water-soluble fluorescent gold clusters capped with dihydrolipoic acid (DHLA) using the etching approach.
