  • Synthesize more gold nanoparticles
  • Create more undoped polymer films
  • Learning how to use the AC impedence spectroscopy


  1. For the synthesis of the AuNPs we simply used the original concentration and procedure, which may be found here. Although a 100mL stock solution of Sodium Citrate was made (same concentration).
  2. The same procedure as yesterday was used to produce films.
    • After discussion with Dr. Fox, we determined that the films should be heated at 230°C and left in the hot press for 15 minutes. The hope is that they will be smoother.


AuNP synthesis

  • 1.156g Sodium Citrate in 100mL H2O
  • 0.003g NaBH4 in 5mL Sodium Citrate Solution
