Scrooge McDuck, fantasy character of the Disney world, finds gold and treasures with his incredible sniff; all his richness gets accumulated in his deposit, where he literally swims in a sea made of his precious coins. How much easier the swim of Scrooge would be, if he had some of our light.goold!
Goold AG manifactures innovative gold materials by using very small (nano-) particles. We start with very simple ingredients: a gold salt, acidic water and proteins that are a waste side-stream of cheese production and we obtain microscopic gold platelets that we use as building blocks of our final materials. These gold platelets also have the unique property of being very shiny.
What about having gold platelets suspended in water, so that the solution flows like a fluid but shines like gold? This is what our liquid.goold is all about.
What about embedding the gold platelets in a 3D matrix made of polymer, to obtain an 18K light-weight gold that shines and that is easily recyclable? This is how we prepare our light.goold.
What about having our gold platelets and whey proteins in a flat geometry, with the possibility of building sheets that act as sensors or that can be used for electronic components or for catalysis? The unique radiation shielding properties of gold, together with the low weight and well-defined nanostructure of our materials, make them also a novel solution for providing radiation protection during space travels. Here is our 2D.goold!
