Description

Nanoparticles are chemical species that exist from 1-100 nanometers. Their applications extend to many different fields of interest. This project seeks to synthesize silver nanoparticles from silver oxide by way of a platinum catalyst. Silver oxide is placed in boiling water. Platinum is then placed in the solution in hopes that the platinum will oxidize the silver oxide and isolate the silver. The product is then examined under Ultra-Violet Visible Spectrophotometry (UV-VIS) to verify if silver particles were isolated. The goal of the project is to create an effective methodology for synthesizing silver nanoparticles.
