Absorbance Data: AuNPs@SiO2

2013 0729 AuNPs@SiO2.PNG<br.> Silica-coated AuNPs made with MHA dissolved in water (heated to 130C in order for MHA to dissolve) vs. MHA dissolved in isopropanol (not heated; MHA soluble in organic solvents).


Spectra for silica-coated AuNPs made with MHA dissolved in water is consistent with spectra found in the literature. The noticeable shift towards the right in the spectra for silica-coated AuNPs made with MHA dissolved in isopropanol is indicative of aggregation. Additionally, the AuNPs-MHA in isopropanol solution was a deep purple color, also consistent with aggregation, while the AuNPs-MHA in water was the characteristic pink color of gold nanoparticles in solution.
