To synthesize two sets of gold nanoparticles by reducing Au3+ by Bovine serum albumin (BSA) and a citrate solution.
The procedures to this experiment were taken from User:Matt_Hartings/Notebook/AU_Biomaterials_Design_Lab/2013/08/28.
To get the 90x dilution of gold in the BSA solution, 1 mL of gold was added to 1.809 mL of BSA to get the final
The final volume after boiling = 25.6mL Matt Hartings Using this volume, what is the final concentration of gold?
The sample solutions analyzed in UV-Vis was diluted 10x.
Using information from the Supporting Information from 'Determination of Size and Concentration of Gold Nanoparticles from UV/vis Spectra':<br.>
Beer's Law was applied to find the concentration of the sample
Accounting for the 10x dilution factor used in taking absorbance measurements:<br.>
