Description

General description

The structure of gold chloride is monoclinic in nature. It sublimes at elevated temperatures.

Application

Nanocrystalline superlattices in gold colloidal solutions have been prepared by ligand-induction using AuCl3 reduced with sodium borohydride. Gold chloride may be used to prepare gold cages which may be potentially useful in surface plasmonics , surface- enhanced Raman spectroscopy, drug delivery, contrast-enhanced optical imaging and photothermal therapy.

Packaging
