In this research, we aimed to create metal cluster-based assemblies with defined morphologies. For this purpose, we xplored synthetic routes to various fundamental cluster units having defined geometric structures and compositions. By taking the emergent principle in the formation and transformation of metal cluster species, we have succeeded in the syntheses of novel diphosphine-coordinated molecular gold clusters with unique geometric and optical features. We also studied the cluster functionalization and the construction of cluster assemblies.
