A Facile Method for the Synthesis of Silver Nanoparticles in the Presence of Sodium Phosphate
A facile method for the synthesis of silver nanoparticles (NPs) has been developed by using sodium phosphate (Na3PO4) as stabilizing agents and glucose the reducing agent, respectively. The obtained silver NPs have been characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), UV-visible spectroscopy (UV-vis) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). It was found that in the presence of sodium phosphate, silver NPs with different morphologies and sizes were obtained. The formation mechanism of diverse silver NPs was studied preliminarily.
