Abstract

The molecular heterometallic [{Au8Ag10(C2Ph)(16)}{(PhC2Au)(2)-PPh2(C6H4) 3PPh2}(2)](2+) aggregate of unprecedented topology was obtained and structurally characterized; this compound demonstrates unusually effective phosphorescence, which displays negligible oxygen quenching due to shielding of emissive central cluster by the outer shell of the molecule.
