- Create a calibration curve with UV-Vis
- Start testing uptake with a java fern using our citrate AuNPs
- Resynthesize citrate AuNPs with times for precision
Four serial dilutions (half dilution) were made of the purple citrate gold nanoparticles were run on UV-Vis. Results are shown in the graphs below.
New nanoparticles were synthesized, using the method established on 01/27/2016, but these nanoparticles were red indicating different sized particles. We will try future trials with both red and purple nanoparticles to see which ones work better.
