Tasklist

  1. Attend Seminar
  2. Attend Group Meeting
  3. Assign data presentation dates (10/25, 11/8, 11/15, 11/29)
  4. Prepare Au/Zn core-shell NP
  5. Freeze dry AuNP

Au/Zn core-shell NP

Use same stock solutions from yesterday plus the AuNP formed overnight

  1. 1 mL AuNP (His/NH4OH) + 1mL His + 1 mL NH4OH + 1 mL ZnAc2 + 6 mL H2O
  2. 1 mL AuNP (His/NaOH) + 1mL His + 1 mL NaOH + 1 mL ZnAc2 + 6 mL H2O
  3. 1 mL AuNP (Cys/NH4OH) + 1mL Cys + 1 mL NH4OH + 1 mL ZnAc2 + 6 mL H2O
  4. 1 mL AuNP (Cys/NaOH) + 1mL Cys + 1 mL NaOH + 1 mL ZnAc2 + 6 mL H2O


Place in oven at 80 C for the next 6 days

Freeze dry AuNP

  1. Weigh 15 mL falcon tube with the cap
  2. Add 5 mL AuNP to tube, cap, & reweigh (I suggest using a small bottle to hold tube upright...leave cap dry)
  3. Replace cap with one with holes & reweigh. Be sure to label original cap, so it can be replaced.
  4. Flash freeze in liquid nitrogen
  5. Connect to lyophilizer and dry until Tuesday
