A Study on the Oxygen Percent and the Crystalline Structure of Silver Nanoparticles Obtained by Electrochemical Method

Sara Sadat Parhizgar, S. Sibouyeh


In this paper silver nanoparticles (NPs) which are synthesized by a simple plasma arc discharge method, that is a kind of electrochemical methods, are examined. The method is very simple and silver NPs are obtained very fast by means of two polished silver plates and electrochemical cell. The effects of changing some terms of the experiment including using Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), temperature and the medium of experiment on oxygen percent and crystalline structure of silver NPs have been studied by transmission electron microscopy, UV-visible spectrophotometery, and X-ray diffraction. Water medium gets larger nanoparticles with less oxygen content compare to air medium. The size of synthesized nanoparticles become smaller and they also become more spherical by using H2O2 in air medium. In water medium, the size and concentration of the silver crystallite increase by temperature growth and adding H2O2  respectively.
