Non-ﬂuorescent gold nanoclusters with a diameter of about Nanoclusters 2 nm were synthesized by reducing HAuCl with NaBH in the presence of tetraethyleneglycol. The ﬂuorescence 4 4 Sulfhydryl oligopeptides of the gold nanoclusters bearing sulfhydryl compounds arose from the ligand-to-metal charge transfer from the Cysteinylglycine sulfhydryl compounds to the gold atoms at the gold nanocluster surface. The sulfhydryl oligopeptides cystei- Near infrared ﬂuorescence nylglycine, glutamylcysteine, and glutathione produced a ﬂuorescence band around 830 nm in the NIR region, whereas the sulfhydryl monopeptides cysteine and homocysteine produced ﬂuorescence in the visible region. Among the sulfhydryl oligopeptides, only cysteinylglycine exhibited stable ﬂuorescence without heating the solution. Because the ﬂuorescent gold nanoclusters bearing cysteinylglycine were so stable, monothiols, amine
