  1. Run ICP on unreacted gold solutions and nanoparticles in solution (as well as for other groups)
  2. Run conductivity tests on same solutions
  3. Run UV-Vis on same solutions


  1. Add experimental record here. Include what, how, and why...


Sample Sample Number in ICP-OES Au (mg/mL)
Unreacted Au Solution #11243.72
Unreacted Au Solution #21253.84
Unreacted Au Solution #31263.83
AuNP Solution #11303.92
AuNP Solution #21313.81
AuNP Solution #31323.84
Average (mg/mL)Unreacted: 3.80AuNP Solution: 3.86

The following graph shows the ICP measurements for unreacted gold solutions and nanoparticles in solution. These values are pretty high, which makes sense because of the amount of Au 3+ ions around the particles and dissolved in water.

Sample Conductivity (uS/cm)
Unreacted #1575
Unreacted #2282
Unreacted #3297.1
AuNP #1346
AuNP #2330
AuNP #3352

The values for the conductivity experiment do not make sense, because of the fluctuation in numbers. There should be a large value of conductivity because of the gold ions in solution.

For UV-Vis blank data, please see Michael's Openwetware for Dec. 2.
