Synthesis and Analysis of Silver/Gold Nanoparticles
01 May 2017 | Contributor(s):: Shelby Hatch, George C. Schatz
This lab provides instructions for the synthesis of nanoscale silver colloidal particles along with questions to guide student thinking regarding the molecular-scale interactions between acids, bases, salts and sugar with the silver particles.A UV-Vis spectrophotometer (300-800 nm) is used to...
Silver Nanoparticle Synthesis, Spectroscopy, and Bacterial Growth
11 Jan 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Pennsylvania State University
Students will learn about the differences in physical propoerties at the nanoscale as compared to the same materials at the macroscale. The students will demonstrate the appropriate use of a spectrophotometer and will convert between different units of measurement. This unit assists students in...
Silver Nanoparticle Socks
10 Jan 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Pennsylvania State Univeristy
This lab will allow students to use the pure silver nanoparticles they synthesize to create antibacterial socks. They will compare their socks with socks that have been treated with a commercial silver spray, socks that have been treated in a factory, and a control that was not been...
Synthesis and Stability of Silver Nanoparticles
01 Dec 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Brandi Childress
The purpose of this experiment is to conduct synthesis of silver nanoplates and explore their shape stability that affects optical property (referred to as localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR). Students will learn about the differences in physical properties and behavior at the...
The Effects of Gold and Silver Nanoparticles on Brine Shrimp: A Toxicology Study
05 Apr 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Sharon Haldeman Mierhofer, NNCI Nano
This lab is designed to help students understand the following: the interdisciplinary fields of science, a practical application of chemistry in the real world, and the need to carefully conduct experiments and evaluate data in a collaborative environment. In this experiment, students will...
