Structural characteristics of the AuNPs from elemental analysis and TEM data
AuNP Size (nm) Calculated m/na from %Nb Number of Au atomsc PBH units per Au nanoparticle Mw
Au[(Gly-Trp-Met)2B] 1.6 0.062 126 8 32,106
Au[(Gly-Tyr-TrCys)2B] 1.8 0.22 180 40 90,397
Au[(Gly-Tyr-Met)2B] 1.5 0.064 104 7 27,100
Au[(Met)2B] 2.3 0.154 375 57 102,625
Au[(TrCys)2B] 2.3 0.26 375 97 164,377

Bold emphasis is used to signal the most stable AuNP; am, Number of PBH units; n, Number of Au atoms; b%N from elemental analysis; cestimated supposing spherical particles and applying N = 30.89602 D3 [47].
