In this paper, we studied the influence of the silver nanoparticles size on the electrical conductivity of PEDOT:PSS in Ag(PEDOT:PSS) films. The silver nanoparticles were synthesized in presence of PEDOT:PSS by varying the molar ratio between AgNO3 and the reducing agent (NaBH4). Both the particle size determined by TEM and the plasmon band obtained by UV-Vis spectroscopy were found to be strongly dependent on the reducing agent concentration. The electrical conductivity increases inversely with the concentration of reducing agent from 5.24 x 10-4 up to 1.63 S/cm; three orders of magnitude higher than pristine PEDOT:PSS.
