Applications of Gold (Au) Nanopowder
A classic use of gold powders, gold not only produces the expected ‘gold’, but can be manipulated through a variety of additives and applications to produce a variety of vivid, shining colors.
The optical properties of gold nanopowders lend them to benefits in medical imaging, photography, and other optical/imaging applications. Of particular interest is new research into the potential of gold powder in cancer diagnosis and photothermal therapy.
Gold powder plays a crucial role in countless electronic manufacturing processes, offering a simple and effective way to produce conductive compounds, suspensions, coatings, etc. Gold nanopowders are of particular use in highly precise production processes.
