Nanopartz Gold Nanowires
Nanopartz™ has developed the industry standard in Gold Nanowires. These nanowires are 75 to 100nm in diameter, and range from 1 µm to 10 microns in length. In the bare form, these nanowires are immersed in DI water with excess CTAB capping agent to minimize aggregation. As with all of Nanopartz products, they are highly monodisperse.

Hexadecyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) (C16H33)N(CH3)3Br, cetyltrimethylammonium bromide. As any surfactant, it forms micelles in aqueous solutions. At 303 K (30 °C) it forms micelles with aggregation number 75-120 (depending on method of determination, usually average ~95) and degree of ionization α (fractional charge) 0.2–0.1 (from low to high concentration). The standard constant of Br- counterion binding to the micelle at 303 K (30 °C) is K° ≈ 400.
These Gold Nanowires are shipped in DI water with excess CTAB capping agent to reduce knotting.
Sizes 75nm x 1 micron through 10 microns. Other sizes are special order. Please contact us.

I want to use these nanowires in my sensor application - how do I go about doing that?
You are going to want to conjugate this nanowires to a ligand. We highly recommend our conjugating services for this.
What is the SPR for this product?
There is no Surface Plasmon Resonance for this particle as the diameter and length are too large, so these are not recommended for dark field microscopy. However, they are large enough to reflect light and are very advantageous for bright field microscopy.
I want to use this product in polymers for transparent electrodes. Can I use them as is?
"We explored several nanoparticle manufacturers because we were unable to reproduce literature results for our application. One manufacturer recommended Nanopartz because of our desire for a narrow distribution of particle sizes. Nanopartz technical support helped us work through our application problems and suggested custom polymers that readily worked where others had failed. This really impressed us. They always provide quick delivery and helpful advice. We would highly recommend Nanopartz."
