To make a solution of AuNP/BSA fibers.


  1. Make a solution with an Au/BSA mole ratio = 166
  2. Combine 1 mL of 3.66 mM HAuCl4 and 1.27 mL of 0.0173 mM BSA in a test tube.
  3. Dilute to 10 mL with water.
  4. Place in oven at 80°C.
  5. Leave solutions in oven for 3.5 hr.

  • AuNP solution tested with cyclic voltammetry on 03/21/12:


It appeared that some of the AuNP in the AuNP solution began to condense out of solution after the addition of KNO3 on 03/21/12.
