Objectives

  • Test the enzymatic/catalytic activity of HRP-AuNPs using luminol and UV/vis with the goal of determining the activity of HRP-AuNPs.
  • Calculate the absorbance prepared Citrate-Au solutions and BSA-Au solutions as standards (solutions were previously prepared on 08/28/2013


Catalytic activity testing

  • Catalytic activity was tested using UV/vis spectroscopy.
  • 3mL sample of luminol, H2O2 and buffer was placed in cuvette with micro-stir bar. After 1min., 100μL HRP-Au was added.
  • A spectrum was taken every 15seconds for twenty minutes.


Sample preparation

 Buffer:0.6140g Tris in 1L, pH set to 8 with HCl ---> 5.1mM
 Luminol:Dissolve 12.9mg luminol in 300uL of DMSO and add to 50mL buffer---> 1.46mM
 H2O2: 312uL 30% H2O2 into 100mL buffer ---> Should be 45mM


  • Preparation of HRP-AuNP samples:
    • General Description of the samples:
      • The final concentration of luminol is such that the absorbance at 333nm is less than one(this was confirmed using UV/vis)
      • The final concentration of hydrogen peroxide is fifty times that of the luminol.
      • Using the 60:1 [Au:HRP] solution, 100uL will be used
      • Add buffer so that the final concentration is 3mL
 Calculations for preparation of sample:
   #Luminol stock solution preparation 5mL 7.26E-5 M luminol: 0.261mL luminol stock added to 5mL buffer.
   #H2O2 stock preparation of 5mL 0.0038M(this is 50x more concentrated): 0.169mL stock in 5mL buffer.
  • Final 3mL solution of luminol, H2O2 and buffer was prepared by adding 1mL luminol, 1mL H2O2 and 1mL buffer.
  • Concentration of luminol was chosen based on previous luminol data on 10/01/2013.
