The procedure from [1] was followed with no UV VIS calculations performed.


  • 0.974 mL of a 0.0154 mM BSA, 8.446 mL of water and 0.581 mL of 4.3 HAuCl4 were combined in a clean and sterile test tube and kept at room temperature.
  • The reaction was placed in an oven at approximately 75 degrees for 30 minutes, and then placed at room temperature for 10 minutes.
  • This procedure was repeated for the next 3 hours, and appearances were noted.


Purple fibers were noted at the 3 hour mark for incubation. This was the intended goal of the experiment.
