Biomineralization of gold nanoparticles while keeping the solution at 80°C the entire time. Today we will repeat yesterday's procedure, but use distilled water instead of buffer.
A spectrum was taken every half hour, and the data collected was corrected with a water spectrum that was taken on 9/7/11:
Because the nanoparticle formation is seen at 550nm, the spectra were zoomed in to better see the increase in absorbance at this wavelength:
The absorbance at 550nm is graphed against time, and it is seen that the absorbance is increasing at 550nm:
