Abstract

Recent studies of supported and unsupported naked metal clusters of low-nuclearity are examined with the aim of comparing their structure and reactivity to those of molecular clusters. It is shown that naked clusters can be prepared with a nuclearity comparable to that of molecular clusters. Moreover, their structure is flexible in response to adsorbates which act as the ligands in coordination compounds. Transformations of molecular clusters into naked clusters and vice versa are examined. The reactivities of unsupported clusters (cluster beams) and of low-nuclearity bimetallic clusters involving two complementary active sites are also discussed.
