Results from Retention tests and new nanofibers


  • The results from the retention tests were recorded. The nanofiber-scaffolds were dried, placed in ethanol, PBS, or Strong Acid. Other nanofiber-scaffolds were placed in plain water, heated water, or in plain water which was later sonicated with the scaffold.
  • New nanofibers were made


Nanofiber preparations

Au stock solution:

  • 0.011g x (1 mol/393.833g) x 0.010L = 2.793mM

Myoglobin stock solution:

  • 0.011g x (1 mol/17699g) x 0.010L = 0.0621mM

BSA stock solution:

  • x (1 mol/66500g) x 0.010L =

Volumes of Au, protein, and water for each test tube:

  • Final [Au]=0.5mM, 5mL total volume
