Abstract

This paper deals with the synthesis of silver nanoparticles (Ag NPs) under different reaction conditions, such as temperature and UV irradiation. We investigated how these variant parameters can affect the final properties of Ag NPs, mostly their size, shape and stability. It is well known that diameter and shape of nanoparticles influence their physical, biological and chemical properties and thus predict their applications in different fields. Tailoring final features of Ag NPs during the synthesis gives us the possibility to prepare nanoparticles with required properties, specifically as antimicrobial or antifungal agents. The prepared nanoparticles were characterized by following methods; transmission electron microscopy, scanning electron microscopy and absorbance in UV-VIS region.

Keywords: silver nanoparticles, synthesis, UV irradiation, temperature, shape, size
