If you want to see gold flowing, make sure you heat it up at high temperatures: in fact, it melts at more than 1000 °C!

However, you can see our liquid.goold flowing even at room temperature. Our gold platelets shine like gold and are happy to flow in a wide range of different solvents!

The creation of conductive, renewable films constantly attracts great interest, due to the increasing demand of functional material that can be used in electronic devices. Our protein fibrils, upon vacuum filtration, act as adhesives among the gold platelets, and allow the creation of hybrid films that can act as humidity sensors and that can potentially be used in a wide range of applications, such as wearable sensors!
