Article history: In the present work the role of the thermal treatment on the reorganization of gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) Received 10 December 2015 functionalized with a -conjugated dithiol ligand, namely 9,9-didodecyl-2,7-bis-thioﬂuorene, is studied Received in revised form 1 February 2016 by grazing incidence X-ray diffraction technique. For a detailed investigation of the structural changes and Accepted 3 February 2016 reorganization occurring in the AuNPs network and of the monitoring of complex interactions between Available online 17 February 2016 nanoparticles, the line proﬁles are analyzed in out-of-plane and in-plane directions. The obtained data support the idea of the formation of a uniform network of nanoparticles that after annealing are extended Keywords: from hexagonal to cubic arrangement.

Introduction nanoparticles, which lead to the achievement of interconnected network. Moreover, ﬂuorene based bifunctional linkers have been The control of the organization of nanostructures into well- used and by varying the Au/S molar ratio it was possible to tailor deﬁned network patterns offers a versatile approach for the the optical and electronic properties of AuNPs and to improve their development of solid state devices [1,2].
