Observing Silver Nanoparticles in Real Time

Caleb Sooknanan ‘20 Silver nanoparticle systems are commonly used in medical treatments, food, and sports products for their antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties; however, more research is needed to understand how such nanoparticles react in biological systems. Doctor Kristina Tschulik and researchers from Ruhr-University Bochum in Germany used a novel combination of electrochemical and spectroscopic methods to observe silver nanoparticle behavior in real time. With these … Continue reading Observing Silver Nanoparticles in Real Time
