#Functionalizing the Gold Nanorods and Quantum Dots

Our first steps are to coat the gold nanorods and quantum dots with single stranded DNA in order to bind them to the origami. Our gold nanorods are orginally coated with a surfactant called CTAB to prevent aggregation while our Quantum Dots are suspended in Toulene. Mercaptoethanol is added to the quantum dots to make them water soluble then both the gold rods and the quantum dots are spun down and resuspended in water. Resuspend twice for good measure.
