Noble metal nanoparticles (NPs) have been drawn tremendous interests due to their superior plasmonic and catalytic functions compared to other metal nanoparticles. In this regard, they have been widely explored for various applications including electrocatalysts, bio/chemical/environmental sensor, photothermal therapy, organic photovoltaics, photocatalysts and surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) spectroscopy. Among the noble metal NPs, Au NPs have attracted research interests as plasmonic platforms due to their inherent structural stability and localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) properties. Manipulation of the LSPR properties of Au NPs is the most critical issue in developing plasmonic platforms. One straightforward way for enhancing plasmonic performance is the assembly of NPs. Accordingly, there are numerous assembly strategies such as charge interaction, van der Walls force and surfactant or DNA mediated assembly of NPs. In this study, I have employed a new route towards assembly of nanoparticle, which called nanoparticle clusters, through controlled galvanic replacement of nanoparticles to enhance the plasmonic performance of nanostructures. The prepared Au NPCs showed enhanced SERS activity compared to Au nanoparticles due to their interparticle gaps, which can induce the strong electromagnetic field enhancement. Even single-molecule SERS events could be detected with the Au NPCs. Also, I developed a new synthetic strategy for assembly of core-shell nanoparticles with plasmonic cores and catalytically active shells is reported for the first time. The prepared Au@M (M= Ag, Pd or Pt) NPCs showed remarkably enhanced plasmonic performance compared to their Au@M nanoparticle counterparts. In situ real-time SERS monitoring of the progress of a catalytic reaction proceeded on the surface of the NPCs indicated that the controlled assembly of core-shell nanoparticles is an effective strategy for integrating plasmonic and catalytic functions in a single platform. I envision that this novel concept of assembly strategy will pave a new way to developing efficient plasmonic and catalytic nanomaterials and that it can be extended to the fabrication of a new class of hybrid nanoarchitectures with unprecedented morphologies and functions
