Hi....to my understanding.... nanoscale Au can be produced by various techniques...to name a few VCLDI, EEW, Chemical route, phyiscal methods etc.... all these techniques doesnt yield nanoparticles of same size, shape, purity etc.... generally depending on the applications the synthesizing techniques is chosen...and each technique has its own temp requirements.... and finally one technique which most widely used for nano colloid preparation is thru reduction of Au(CN)3.. and this process is room temperature....on the other hand plasma process will require higher end temperature.... do correct me if i am wrong...
sorry for the delayed reply... i was suffering from chicken pox and was nt in the lab for couple of weeks... by the way... as for as mechnical grinding is concern... we have nt tried in the my lab..i mean gold mech. grinding.. bt then.. as such there is no much important is given to temperature... furthermore since gold is very very ductile metal...mech grinding will and should be done in cryo condition in order have significant size reduction...
I am working on interaction of gold nanoparticles with microtubules which are one of the cytoskeletal protein that have important role in some disease. we purified this protein from the brain and hope to find a way to improve memory. if you are interested contact me
Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.
There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!
Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
