Histochemical Differentiation of Autometallographically Traceable Metals (Au, Ag, Hg, Bi, Zn): Protocols for Chemical Removal of Separate Autometallographic Metal Clusters in Epon Sections


Nano-sized clusters of gold atoms, or alternatively silver, mercury, bismuth, or zinc sulphide/selenide molecules, can be autometallographically silver-enhanced by being placed in a developer containing reducing molecules and silver ions, i.e. an autometallographic developer. A specific recipe has been worked out for each autometallographically traceable… (More)
