Gold Nanoparticle Synthesis and Characterization

Nanoparticles are used in all kinds of things you interact with on a daily basis
including sunscreens, antibiotic treatments, solar cells, and cosmetics. We invite you and your students to synthesize gold nanoparticles in your lab classroom and characterize those nanoparticles with a variety of analytical instrumentation in RTNN facilities.
