Book Summary

The synthesis and application of silver nanoparticles are increasingly becoming attractive.
Hence, a critical examination of the various factors needed for the synthesis of silver
nanoparticles as well as the characterization is imperative. In light of this, we addressed
in this chapter, the nitty-gritty on the operational parameters (factors) and characterization
relevant to synthesis of silver nanoparticle. The following characterization protocols
were discussed in the context of silver nanoparticle synthesis. These protocols include
spectroscopic techniques such as ultraviolet visible spectroscopy (UV–Vis), Fourier transform
infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission
electron microscopy (TEM), energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX), X-ray fluorescence
(XRF), X-ray diffraction (XRD), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and X-ray photoelectron
spectroscopy (XPS).
