Effect of Au/BSA Ratio
The following graphs show the effect of varying ratios in between the purple nanoparticle solution ratio (70) and the fiber solution ratio (166). This data is from solutions made on 03/06/2012.
The following graphs show the effect of varying ratios in a smaller range (130-146 Au/BSA) to identify the ratio at which there is no longer a nanoparticle peak around 550nm.
The data from solutions with ratios varying between the purple solution and fiber solution (between 70 and 166) showed a dramatic decrease between 130 and 150 Au/BSA, indicating a switch to more fiber formation. This led us to test more ratios in between 130 and 150, with increments of 2 to refine the range where the change occurs.
The 148 Au/BSA had no fiber formation and was completely clear so that sample was disregarded and no data was collected for that point. Data for 130-146 was obtained to show that a marked decrease in the peak occurred between 132 and 134, indicating that this is the point at which nanoparticle solution can no longer be made and fiber formation begins.
