Objectives

  1. Prepare a BSA-Magnetite solution with the purpose of synthesizing BSA fibers with magnetite nanoparticles incorporated in the fiber.
  2. Analyze protein-AuNP solutions prepared on 01/28/2014 using UV/vis.
  3. Analyze protein-AuNP-Magnetite solutions prepared on 01/28/2014 using UV/vis.


Preparation of BSA-Magnetite solution

  • The following protocol was adapted from the following reference[[1]]

General Protocol:

  1. Prepare a stock solution of BSA in a volumetric flask using deionized H2O.
  2. Preparation of hemoglobin magnetic fibers at a 130:1 ratio using the protocol described below (this is the protocol we followed on Wednesday in which everything is conducted under nitrogen in a Schlenk line)

-A 5mL solution of 30mM FeSO4·7H2O, 100 mM KOH, and 400 mM KNO3 will be prepared with hemoglobin. The mixture will be incubated at room temperature for 5min while bubbling nitrogen gas and placed in a round bottom with a septum. The reaction mixture will be heated using a hot water bath to 90 degrees celcius for 4 hours.

  • Note: A previously prepared stock solution of 15mM BSA was used for the preparation.

UV/vis

General Protocol:

  1. Place 1mL of each ratio in an 1.5mL eppendorf tube.
  2. Centrifuge at maximum speed for 30 minutes.
  3. Take a UV-Vis spectrum of each sample from 200nm to 800nm.
  4. After taking the spectrum, store the sample in a fresh eppy tube in an upright position.
