Synthesis and Stability of Silver Nanoparticles

Education Level
High School
Silver nanoparticles can take the shape of cubes, spheres, bars, wires, bi-pyramids, beams, plates, and discs depending upon the seed it forms from. Students will learn about the differences in physical properties and behavior at the nanoscale as compared to the same materials at the macroscale. This lesson assists students in working with scale and unit conversion. This lesson uses a ultraviolet–visible spectrophotometer. If not available to the educator, one can be remotely accessed at RAIN or check with your local college or university.
