Tweaking homogeneity and stability of gold nanorods by synergistic action of pH and temperature

Nitin Kumar; Shivesh Sharma; Seema Nara

Volume 3, Issue 8 , 2018, Pages 501-507

http://dx.doi.org/10.5185/amp.2018/7005

Abstract
  Commonly used seed-mediated method of gold nanorod synthesis has limitations like formation of by-products (stars, squares, dog-bones, platelets), slow but continuous growth during storage/ageing which adversely affects their homogeneity. Storage in the presence of cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) ...  Read More

Ag nanoparticles induced modification in microhardness of polyvinyl alcohol

Isha Saini; Annu Sharma; Naveneet Chandak; Sanjeev Aggarwal; Pawan K. Sharma

Volume 3, Issue 8 , 2018, Pages 508-511

http://dx.doi.org/10.5185/amp.2018/6777

Abstract
  Silver (Ag) nanoparticles play a significant role in nanomaterials science and technology due to many peculiarities. One of the main characteristic of Ag nanoparticles is the occurrence of surface plasmon resonance (SPR) due to the collective oscillation of free electrons in visible region. Due to this ...  Read More
