30.03.2011 - Gold has magnetic properties: WGC
Gold is not an investment asset alone. The medicinal, mechanical and industrial uses of gold have been written about plenty of times. Now a new research says gold has magnetic properties. The recently discovered magnetic properties of gold nanoparticles are the subject of the lead article in the new issue of the journal, Gold Bulletin. The paper, “Unexpected magnetism in gold nanostructures: Making gold even more attractive,” by Professor Simon Trudel, University of Calgary, explains the cause of the unexpected magnetism in gold and explores how these properties could lead to potential applications in catalysis, medicine and data storage............................................Full Article: Source
