UV-Vis scans of mole ratio ranging from 120 to 134
Continuation of UV-Vis scans for pH 8
- The solutions containing the tris buffer (pH 8) were run through UV-Vis scan for the third time. The UV-Vis scans for each run are listed on the table below.
- For the third run, a background noise was seen on the raw data in the signal processor interface (computer). A UV-Vis scan of 150 μL of water was taken. The UV-Vis scan of water will be used to account for the background noise seen on the UV-Vis scan reading. The absorbance of water can then be subtracted from the raw spectra of the mole ratios in MS Excel.

Preparation of solution with mole ratio 170
- The previous batch of Au/BSA solutions were disposed. Hence, a new set of solutions were needed to test the effects of tris buffer pH 10.
- Varying the mole ratio of the Au/BSA was irrelevant for this step since this factor was being held constant. The option of making the solution to mole ratio 170 was a random choice.
- The stock solution used for the preparation of the new set of Au/BSA solution were provided by faculty, Dr. Miller.
- The molarity of the BSA stock solution was 2.4268 M and of HAuCl4 was 2150 μM.
- Again, using the dilution equation, M1V1 = M2V2, the following values were obtained:
VBSA = (1 μM × 6 mL) ÷ 24.226 μM = .248 mL of BSA
VAu = (1 μM × 6 mL × 170) ÷ 2150 μM = .474 mL of HAuCl4
- After making the appropriate calculations, seven samples were made with the same concentration. Seven solutions were needed to suffice the amount of solutions needed for the serial dilution of tris buffer pH 10.
- The set of seven solutions of Au/BSA mole ratio 170 were placed inside an oven for 4 h. at 85°C. Before placing the set inside the oven, the solutions appeared clear and colorless liquids.
