Gold number (a measure of the efficacy of a protective hydrophilic sol material like gelatin or starch) is the number of milligrams of the dry hydrophilic colloid to be added to 100 ml of a standard gold sol to prevent its precipitation(noted by a change from red to blue) by the rapid addition of 1ml of 10 % sodium chloride solution. Smaller the value higher is the protective action.Answered by Arakuzha Ramachandran, 06 Dec '09 04:21 pm
