With this experiment you will discover the properties of gold at the nanoscale.
Gold (Au, atomic number 79) is the most malleable and ductile metal of all; it can be beaten to very thin sheets of material and rolled or bent as desired. This has been known and done for centuries.
In this experiment you will investigate nanoparticles of gold or nano-gold! The properties of nano-gold are very different and it all has to do with the size of the nanoparticles.
