This work deals with the preparation of silver nanoparticles using ionizing radiation. The nanosilver was prepared from aqueous solutions of silver nitrate with either Triton X-100 or Brij L4 as the stabilizer and reducing ˙OH radical scavenger. The effects of AgNO3 concentration, dose and type of deposited energy – accelerated electrons, gamma rays or UV – were studied. UV-Vis spectrometry was used to determine the concentration of silver nanoparticles. Photon Cross-correlation Spectroscopy was used to determine particle size in dispersions.Keywords: Nanosilver preparation, electron, gamma, UV irradiation, micelles
