Colloid gold nanoparticles’ properties and applications are largely dependent on the size and shape of these particles. The rod-like particles are characterized by transverse and longitudinal absorption peaks. Their self-assembly is affected by anisotropy.
Because of their interaction with visible light, colloidal gold has been used for many centuries by artists. Based on the size of the particles, their shape and local refractive indice, as well as whether they are in a state or not, nanoparticles of gold absorb and scatter light. This results in colors that vary from bright red to darker blues to black to transparent and non-colorless to larger particles. These colors are due to a phenomena called “local surface plasmon reflection (LSPR) in which conductor electrons at the nanoparticles’ surfaces resonate with incident sunlight.
In general, nanoparticle sizes increase the wavelengths of absorbed light. A pseudo-spherical, gold nanoparticle with a 30 nm diameter has peak LSPR absorption of approximately 530 nm.
A colloidal solution of gold nanoparticles can lead to a change in the color of the solution. Also, the optical properties are affected by the refractive indices near nanoparticles. Thus, two molecules that connect directly to the surface nanoparticles (i.e. the nanoparticles glue) or nanoparticles of liquid may alter the optical properties. NP LSPR is sensitive to changes in refractive values near gold surfaces. However, NP LSPR can shift towards longer wavelengths only when there are solvents. In these environments the extinction peak may be adjusted by covering nanoparticles of non-conductive shells (biomolecules or alumina) with silica.
Gold nanoparticles can change their optical properties when aggregated. The effective size and shape of the particles, as well as the dielectric environment, all affect the particle’s optical properties.
For what purpose is colloidal gold used?
Drug delivery system
Nanoparticles of gold can be used for optimizing the drug distribution in diseasesd cells, organs and tissues. This will allow you to target better drug delivery. Only if the drug distribution system is not adequate, nanoparticle-mediated drug Delivery is possible. You can use drug targeting to combat instability (proteins and siRNA), DNA. Delivered to trouble sites such as the brain, retina and tumors, or intracellular organelles, drugs that have serious side effects (e.g. anticancer medications) Nanoparticles’ performance is affected by their surface function and particle size. Additionally, the release of drugs and decomposition can differ from one system to another (e.g. PH-sensitive biodegradable materials
Enhancer for Radiotherapy
To increase tumor-specific doses, there has been a great deal of interest in gold and other particles containing heavy metal atoms. Due to the fact that the dosage is increased by selectively increasing the amount of the gold nanoparticles absorbed into the tumors, rather than the surrounding healthy tissue, It is believed that the radiation dose near the nanoparticles contributes to their biological effectiveness. It works in the same way as heavy ion treatment.
Toxic gas detection
The AuNPs property of gold nanoparticles has allowed for an inexpensive and simple in-situ method of detecting H2S within the air. When H2S gets dissolved in weakly acid buffer solution, it forms HS- which stabilizes AuNPs. This allows for naked detection of levels of H2Stoxicity.
What’s the difference between Colloidal Silver & Colloidal Gold, and How do they differ?
The widespread use of colloidal silver for treatment of a wide range conditions includes viral and bacterial infection, allergies, burns and skin conditions as well as cancer and HIV.
It is believed that colloidal gold can improve memory and cognition, decrease stress and reduce the risk of getting headaches, and overall improve your health.
Are Colloidal Gold and Natural?
The gold nanoparticles can be used as a natural substance, without the use of any additives.
