Hydrothermal Synthesis of Flower-Like Silver Nanoplate Micro-Assemblies in High Yields
We demonstrated the fabrication of the flower-like silver nanoplate micro-assemblies in high yields by a facile hydrothermal method. This novel nanostructure was synthesized in the presence of poly (vinyl pyrrolidone) (PVP) and ascorbic acid (AsA) at 150 °C for 10 h. The microassemblies with average size of 1~2 μm are consisted of several uniform nanoplates and show face centered cubic structure. The effects of the concentration of reactants, molar ratio of silver nitrate to ascorbic acid on the formation of the flower-like silver micro-assemblies were also presented.
