2. Plasmon resonance

Proteins in living cells perform their functions in pairs and groups. One of the methods which allows investigation of molecular interaction is surface plasmon resonance (SPR). SPR occurs when polarized light strikes an electrically conducting surface, often gold films, at the interface between two media...

3. Gold and bacteria

Unusual bacteria X excrete molecules B which bind selectively gold ions and turn them into gold nanoparticles (Fig. (a), I, for comparison are shown bacteria not producing B: cells II and III). B production increases with the iron concentration decrease in the medium...

5. Porous metal from ionic cluster

Metal clusters are the smallest nano-scale compounds which could be applied as precursors for mesoporous materials and metal nanoparticles. Substance A is an ionic compound with a metal cluster-anion of the general formula [(C2H5)4N]+3[X]3– which demonstrates catalytic activity in hydration reactions...
