The purpose of the present set of experiments was to synthesize gold nanoparticles (in solution and in fibers) and to continue extract proteins.
In order to make gold nanoparticle fibers BSA and chloroauric acid were combined in a 1:1 ratio (labeled red R), and in order to make nanoparticle fibers the ratio of chloroauric acid to BSA was 1:2 (labeled green G). Two different volumes of the BSA and gold were added for each ratio, thus created 4 test tubes. The green test tubes were left in the oven over night, while the red test tubes were taken out for 50 minutes and allowed to sit at room temperature for 10 min for a total of 3 hours.
This area is for any observations or conclusions that you would like to note.
