- Today we worked with Steve again from the Shih lab and were able to synthesize our own colloidal gold particles of various sizes (from about 5nm to 50 nm in diameter)
- This morning I also began working on preparing solutions of several pH ranges for synthesis of our disulfide linked strands.
- Whilst doing other things, we also ran a series of gels containing samples from yesterday of our attempt to make a nanoparticle chain. While we had a little difficulty managing the thin acrylamide gel the first time, we were able to get a much cleaner result our second time around.
