Findings from Nanchang University Provides New Data on Materials Science (Facile synthesis of gold nanoflowers assisted by soybean peptides and their applications in surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy and catalysis)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- Researchers detail new data in Materials Science. According to news reporting from Nanchang, People's Republic of China, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "The controlled synthesis of gold nanoflowers demonstrates high yields and good monodispersity following reduction of hydrochloroauric acid and soybean peptides in alkaline aqueous solution. Proper pH is essential for the formation of nanoflowers."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from Nanchang University, "Gold microplates and branched and flower-like particles can be prepared by adjusting the pH of the aqueous solution. Moreover, maintaining an adequate soybean peptide concentration is important for the three-dimensional formation of monodisperse nanoflowers. The prepared gold flower-like nanoparticles are effective catalysts for the activation and reduction of methylene blue in the presence of NaBH4."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Here, we also exhibit the effective application of gold nanoflowers for surface enhanced Raman scattering."
