Stability of Graphene Oxide encapsulated Gold Nanorods for optical sensing purposes. Journal of Physics: Conference Series, 1065(3), article number 0.032021. doi: 10.1088/1742-6596/1065/3/032021


This paper presents the synthesis and characterization of a graphene oxide encapsulated gold nanorod (GNR) complex, where its stability was investigated over time by recording the absorption spectra obtained using a UV/Visible spectrometer over the wavelength region of 200 nm to 1000 nm. Poly Ethylene Glycol (PEG) stablized GNRs were found to be more stable in the presence of graphene oxide dispersions compared to Cetyl Timethyl Ammonium Bromide (CTAB) stabilized GNRs. These GNR complexes, prepared with an active graphene oxide coating on the surface, are presented as a well-suited platform for the development of localized plasmon resonance-based fibre optic biosensors due to the surface functional groups of graphene oxide that can form bio-composites with other biological nanomaterials.
