Abstract. The synthesis of gold nanoparticles (size from 10 to 50 nm) by
three different methods is reported. The nanoparticles were characterized
by UV-VIS-spectros-copy, transmission electron and atomic force
microscopy, and their shape and size distribution were determined.
Interaction of gold nanoparticles with a globular protein and with
cysteine was investigated.
