Description

Synthesis and characterization of silver nanoparticles are of current interest. This research project describes a simple and rapid synthesis of silver nanoparticles upon reduction of Silver(I) oxide (Ag2O) by molecular hydrogen. The production of nanoparticles can be achieved by purging a solution of Ag2O and water with hydrogen gas and heating for a maximum of two minutes using a common kitchen microwave. This reaction generates nearly naked silver colloid that contains no foreign stabilizers other than metal particles and water species. Its application is then evaluated with biological cultures to test for the antibacterial effects of the made particles.

Thank you for your interest in the Silver Nanoparticle Synthesis by Microwave and Non-microwave Methods Using Hydrogen Gas as a Reducing Agent. We regret this session is no longer available. We invite you to engage with some of our other students during this time.
