Nanoparticle Fiber

  • Determine the concentration and amounts needed for Au and BSA in a solution with 140 times more Au than BSA
    • Concentrations:
      • Au = .25 mM
      • BSA = 1.785 μM
    • Amounts:
      • Au = .4924 mg
      • BSA = 1.19 mg
  • Amounts needed multiplied by 10 to get 10 times the concentration in stock solutions
    • Theoretical Amounts:
      • Au = 4.924 mg
      • BSA = 11.9 mg
    • Actual amounts used:
      • Au = 5.3 mg
      • BSA = 12.6 mg
    • Adjusted mL based on extra amounts:
      • Au solution = 10.76mL
      • BSA solution = 10.57mL
  • 1mL was siphoned from each solution and added to 8mL of purified water.
  • The 10mL Au+BSA+H2O solution was then put into the oven for approximately 4 hours.

Gel

  • 10mL of water was added to 1.682 g poly(vinyl alcohol) (130,000 molecular weight)
    • This solution was heated and stirred for approximately 40 minutes until a homogeneous gel remained
