ABSTRACT
Colloidal gold particles with uniform size distributions were fabricated utilizing human red blood cells (RBCs) as templates. The gold shells were charged with a metal chelating agent to prevent flocculation. The procedure described here allows control over the shape of the colloidal particles. Thus, it was possible to fabricate discs and spheres by controlling the osmotic pressure.

The factors that determine whether osmosis occurs by bulk flow of by simple diffusion include the structure of the membrane and solubility of water in the membrane. A criterion...
