Objective

We made more fibers for analysis to use for the rest of the semester.

  1. We'll be using the protocols we used on September 2nd. The only difference is that we'll use the stock concentrations that Professor Hartings made today (see below).

Description

Target Concentrations

Based on the total reaction volume that the class will be using and the final concentrations that will be in each reaction volume, I have determined that the following HAuCl4·H2O and Lysozyme masses are appropriate for today's stock solutions.

Stock solutions

  1. HAuCl4·H2O
    1. 2.5 mM
    2. MW = 339.79 g/mol
    3. Volume = 50 mL
    4. 42.4 mg
  2. Lysozyme
    1. 20 μM
    2. MW = 14307 g/mol
    3. Volume = 100 mL
    4. 28.6 mg

Actual Concentrations

The actual masses are different from the target masses. The concentrations shown below reflect the actual concentrations made for the stock solutions. I used a 50 mL volumetric flask to make the gold stock solution and a 100 mL volumetric flask to make the protein solution. In each case I used HPLC-grade water.

Stock solutions

  1. HAuCl4·H2O
    1. 50.38 mg
    2. MW = 339.79 g/mol
    3. Volume = 50 mL
    4. 2.96 mM
  2. Lysozyme
    1. 28.69 mg
    2. MW = 14307 g/mol
    3. Volume = 100 mL
    4. 20.1 μM

Directions for making samples

Note: The final concentration of gold should be 0.25 mM and the final concentration of lysozyme should be 5.556 μM. This gives a Au:lysozyme ratio of 45, which should yield fibers.

  1. 1 mL samples
    1. Volume of gold stock: 84.4 μL
    2. Volume of protein stock: 276 μL
    3. Volume of water: 640 μL
  2. 5 mL samples
    1. Volume of gold stock: 422 μL
    2. Volume of protein stock: 1,380 μL
    3. Volume of water: 3,198 μL


  • Preparation of trypsin samples.
  1. Weigh 15 eppendorf tubes and record their mass.
  2. To each tube, add approximately 1mg of trypsin, weigh and record.
  3. Calculate the concentration in each tube if 1mL of liquid were added.

Calculations to find concentration:

    Concentration = [trypsin(g)/23'300g/mol]/0.001L


Matt Hartings What were the results of your syntheses? Where is the class UV-Vis analysis? What is the eppendorf mass data?
