Abstract

The size dependence of the heats of melting of transition metal nanoclusters (Ni, Au, Cu and Ag) is investigated using two alternative methods of computer simulation (isothermal molecular dynamics and Monte Carlo). Au and Cu nanoclusters are subjected to more detailed study over a wide range of their sizes. The heats of melting are shown to fall along with nanocluster size and to tend in some approximation to a linear dependence on inverse particle radii.
