## To Do

• Continue with Silica Coating Procedure
• Analyze UV-Vis Data from AuNP/DNA attachment performed yesterday

## Silica Coating Procedure

1) Prepare the following solutions:

• 1mL AuNP & MHA solution/20μL TES/0.125mL NH4OH/5mL propanol
• 1mL AuNP & MHA solution/15μL TES/0.125mL NH4OH/5mL propanol
• 1mL AuNP & MHA solution/10μL TES/0.125mL NH4OH/5mL propanol
• 1mL AuNP & MHA solution/5μL TES/0.125mL NH4OH/5mL propanol

2) Stir solutions for one hour to allow reaction to proceed

3) Centrifuge solutions at 4000 rpm for one hour

4) Re-suspend particles in PBS to a final concentration of 5nM?

## DNA/AuNP Data Analysis

See Image:2013 0715 AuNP-DNA.xlsx for AuNP/DNA spectra as well as absorbance values and molar extinction coefficients used to calculate concentrations of each in final solutions.

Calculating the surface area of 1 AuNP

Surface Area of a sphere = 4πr2, r = 5nm

4π(5x10-9m)2 = 3.14 x 10-16m2 = 314nm2

Calculating the # of AuNP in 240.7μL 29.67nM solution

29.67 x 10-9mol/L x 240 x 10-6L x 6.02x1023 AuNP/mol = 4.299 x 1012 AuNP

Calculating the Total Surface Area Available for DNA Attachment

4.299 x 1012 AuNP x 3.14x10-16m2/1 AuNP = 0.001349886 m2

Calculating the Number of Moles of DNA Available to Attach

2.225x10-6moles/L x 240.7x10-6L = 5.3555575 x 10-10 moles DNA

Calculating the theoretical oligonucleotide density on each particle
