Assembly of gold nanorods

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


The synthesis of gold nanorods was described using a modified version of seed mediated growth in water. The fractions of deionized water were used to rinse the 125 mL conical flask, collected, and transferred to a 15 mL centrifuge tube. Any sample with remaining purplish or reddish coloration was carefully removed from the tube and discarded. Sample averages revealed that end-to-end linkages could be realized ∼30% of the time while other binding events comprised ∼34%.
