The size and shape of colloidal silver nanoparticles are very important in determining their properties and potential uses. The rod-shaped particles for example have transverse absorption peaks and longitudinal absorption peak peaks. Their self-assembly is affected by anisotropy.
Because of the interaction between nanoparticles of visible light and colloidal gold, artists have been using it for centuries. Depending upon the particle size, shape, local index and state of aggregate, gold nanoparticles absorb light and produce colors that vary from bright red (smaller particles), to blue (larger ones) and finally transparent (colorless or indistinct). These colors are due to a phenomenon known as local surface plasmon reflection (LSPR), where conducting electrons on the nanoparticles’ surfaces resonate with incident sunlight.
In general, the wavelength of absorbed light increases as the size of nanoparticles. For example, pseudospherical gold nanoparticles have a diameter of around 30 nm and peak LSPR absorbtion at around 530 nm.
A colloidal gold suspension may also cause apparent changes in color of the gold-nanoparticles solution. The optical properties and optical properties are dependent on the refractive indices near the nanoparticles’ surfaces. This means that two molecules (i.e., nanoparticles glue) or nanoparticles of solvent can have an impact on the observed optical characteristics. NP LSPR shifts to longer wavelengths when the refractive Index near the surface of gold increases. However, this is not possible in solvent environments. Nanoparticles can be coated non-conductive shells (biomolecules or alumina) to adjust the extinction peak.
Gold nanoparticles can change their optical properties when aggregated. This happens because of changes in the effective particle size, shape and dielectric environmental.
What does Colloidal Gold do?
Drug delivery system
Nanoparticles of gold can be used for optimizing the biological distribution drugs in diseased organs, tissues or cells. This will allow for better drug delivery. Only if drug distribution is insufficient, nanoparticle mediated drug Delivery is possible. Examples of this include drug targeting against stability (proteins, siRNA and DNA). Delivery to hard sites (brains, retinas, tumors, intracellular organismelles) and drugs that have severe side effects (e.g., antibiotics for cancer) are examples. Nanoparticles’ performance is affected by their surface function and particle size. Additionally, drug release and particle degradation can differ from one system or another (e.g. ph sensitive biodegradable materials
Radiotherapy dose increaser
To increase tumor-specific doses, there has been much interest in gold and other particles containing heavy elements. The dose is selectively increased as the gold nanoparticles absorb more from the tumor than the surrounding healthy tissue. The local deposition near the nanoparticles is what appears to make the treatment more biologically effective. This process is similar to heavy ion treatment.
Toxic gas detection
A simple and cheap method to detect H2S in the atmosphere has been created based on the AuNPs characteristics of gold nanoparticles. The formation of HS- occurs when H2S is dissolved in weakly acid buffer solution. This can stabilize AuNPs, and allow for naked detection of H2S toxic level.
What is the difference between Colloidal Silver, Colloidal Gold and Colloidal Silver?
The widespread use of colloidal silver for treatment of a wide range conditions includes viral and bacterial infection, allergies, burns, skin conditions and even cancer.
Colloidal gold has been shown to improve memory and cognitive function as well as reduce stress and headaches.
Is Colloidal Gold Natural?
The gold nanoparticles are an all-natural substance, without any chemical additives.
