Synthesis and Characterization of Ag-Pd Nanoparticles by a Reverse Micelle Process


Article Preview

Preparation of Ag-Pd nanoparticles by the reduction of AgNO3 and PdCl2 with hydrazine in Igepal CO-520/cyclohexane reverse micelle solutions was studied. An analysis by transmission electron microscope and electron diffraction spectrum revealed that the resultant particles are silver-palladium. The average size of the synthesized nanoparticles slightly changed with increases in the molar ratio of water to Igepal CO 520. The average size of the synthesized nanoparticles was below 5 and they were broadly distributed.
