Rapid preparation and characterization of uniform, large, spherical Ag particles through a simple wet-chemical route.

Journal Article

In this article we report the rapid preparation of uniform, large, spherical Ag particles through a simple wet-chemical route. The formation of Ag particles with about 750 nm in diameter occurs in a single process, carried out by direct mix of AgNO3 aqueous solution and ortho-phenylenediamine N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone solution at room temperature, producing a relatively low-polydispersity product. It is also found that raising the temperature results in larger particles. Scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, and X-ray photoelectron spectra have been used to characterize the resulting product.
