  • If you did not form AuNP, remake solutions and try again
    • You may need to remake the stock solution
    • You can run a quick test at 90°C using oven in Rm 205. Particles should form within 1 - 2 hr.
  • Prepare amino acid solutions of the same concentration as BSA (250 μM ?)
    • Choose three amino acids: an aromatic R, an amine (or thiol) R, and an aliphatic R
    • Prepare 50 mL of each stock
  • Make AuNP using your amino acid solutions
    • For each amino acid solution, use a Au: amino acid solution of 20, 80, & 160
    • Measure the pH of your solution.
  • Measure the UV and fluorescence of your amino acid stock solutions
