Additional files

Additional file 1:

Detailed description of the experimental procedures for quantification, Benedict’s test, and volumetric titration. The additional file 1 contains the TEM images for three different sizes of dGNPs along with the description of quantification of dGNPs. The presence of dextrose on the surface of dGNPs was determined using the Benedict’s test which has been discussed along with the experimental results. Moreover, the additional file contains a brief discussion over the volumetric titration that was performed to determine the presence of unreduced hydroxyl group.
