|Title:||Measuring the Hydrodynamic Size of Nanoparticles in Aqueous Media Using Batch-Mode Dynamic Light Scattering|
|Published:||January 01, 2011|
|Abstract:||Particle size characterization is of particular importance to nanomedicine as ,nanoŠ is a dimensional definition, and the size similarity of nanoparticles to biological moieties is believed to impart many of their unique medical properties. Here we present a method for sample preparation and the determination of mean nanoparticle size (hydrodynamic diameter) using batch-mode dynamic light scattering (DLS) in dilute aqueous suspensions. We then demonstrate this method for 30 nm colloidal gold.|
