Metal Clusters: Size Dependent Chemical and Electronic Properties

Abstract

Compared to atomic or bulk materials, small isolated gas phase metal clusters have recently been shown to have individually unique properties which not only vary with cluster size, i.e. number of atoms in the cluster, but also vary dramatically from one metal to another [1–9]. Thus the study of the “exotic” chemical and physical properties of such species has attracted much interest from both experimentalists and theoreticians.
