Dianna has officially started working in the research lab! She was able to use several literature papers alongside Dr. Gerdon’s calculations to assemble a protocol for uniform size nanoparticle synthesis. She has been using the standard Templeton method for nanoparticle synthesis with a few changes found in more recent papers. These changes include pH adjustments, longer rotation time, as well as different compounds used to coat the nanoparticles. Dianna is so excited to see which changes to the standard synthesis method create nanoparticles that are uniform in size!
