Synthesis of Silver and Gold Nano-particles Using co-precipitation Method

Authors(4) :-Nitin Longadge, Anjali Rahatgaonkar, Swati Raut , AmolNande

In continuation of the efforts a chemical method for in situ synthesis of gold and silver nanoparticles using co-precipitation method under ambient conditions has been reported. NaBH4 was used as a reducing reagent to perform the reaction. The obtained nanoparticles have been investigated by Transmission Electron Microscopy. The process is easy to make and size can be controlled using reduction reagent.
