How do you make a colloidal gold generator?

You can make colloidal with low voltage electrolysis you need about 30 volts dc at 500ma, a pure gold anode, a copper cathode, ordinary table salt, and tri-sodium citrate. The electrical current along with the salt (sodium chloride) produces gold chloride, which is reduced back to metal nanoparticles by the tri-sodium citrate which is a reducing agent and stabilizer.

A voltaic cell is made with gold and sodium electrodes What happens at the cathode of this cell?

Gold is reduced. Gold is plated onto the cathode.

How does the behavior of the electrons in block of gold differ from the behavior in a block of salt?

gold (Ag) is a pure element, so the electrons just orbit the nucleus in the electron cloud. But salt is a compound of sodium plus chloride (NaCl). these elements are bonded together in an Ionic bond, so Sodium (Na) loses an electron, and that electron is transferred to chloride (Cl), this way both elements have 8 valence electrons. In short, gold's electrons orbit the nucleus, and in salt, sodium gives an electron to chloride so they can both have 8 valence electrons.

What is the chemical formula for gold (III) chloride?

Most commonly it is AuCl3 for gold(III) chloride. Gold(I) chloride would be AuCl.

Are sugar and table salt and gold compounds or elements?

Sugar and salt are compunds Gold is an element Household sugar is sucrose, it is made from carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen; with the formula C12H22O11, it is a glucose and a fructose molecule bonded together. Table salt is sodium chloride, NaCl, made from a sodium and a chlorine atom bonding together. Gold is just gold ,Au.
