Abstract

Silver nanoparticles were prepared in reverse micelles of sucrose fatty acid esters. The TEM image showed that the obtained silver nanoparticles displayed a wide variety of shapes. The size of silver nanoparticles was strongly dependent upon a kind of reducing agents and tended to increase with an increase in reaction temperature. Moreover, the size of silver nanoparticles was controlled by using sucrose fatty acids at a different esterification degree or by mixing sucrose fatty acid monoesters with polyoxyethylene sorbitan fatty acid monoesters. The resultant silver colloid could be preserved for at least 1 month without precipitation.
