conductors,3,4 oxides,5,6 polymeric,7,8 and carbon-based9,10 nanoparticles have been receiving much attention due to their unique and fascinating properties.11 Among the different metallic nanoparticles, gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) are proba-bly the most studied because of their particular optical and
The sample was ultrasonicated in an ultrasonic bath for ~2 minutes before measurement. In section 3.3, a mixture of three aqueous suspensions of gold nanoparticles with nominal diameters of 56 nm (RM 8013, NIST, USA), 79 nm and 99 nm (BB International, UK) was used.
Dynamic light scattering (DLS) is a technique in physics that can be used to determine the size distribution profile of small particles in suspension or polymers in solution. In the scope of DLS, temporal fluctuations are usually analyzed by means of the intensity or photon auto-correlation function (also known as photon correlation spectroscopy or quasi-elastic light scattering).
differential particle size histogram (ﬁgure 6 of ) shows a size range from 15nm to 50nm, although these numbers were not certiﬁed. This size range was used for plotting the distributions of this study. Figure 1 shows scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and TEM images for these nanoparticles.
We have shown that a detailed size histogram can be obtained for the particles in situ by monitoring their sedimentation using a simple absorption spectrometer, if absorption is measured at several wave lengths.
