For the first time, the α-Ag2S (acanthite)-β-Ag2S (argentite) phase transformation in nanocrystalline and coarse-crystalline powders of silver sulfide has been observed in situ by the scanning electron microscopy method in real-time. The argentite crystals are formed on the surface of acanthite particles as a result of electron-beam heating. According to(More)
Powders of silver sulfide have been synthesized by chemical bath deposition from aqueous solutions of silver nitrate and sodium sulfide in the presence of sodium citrate or EDTA-H2Na2. Colloid solutions have been prepared by a chemical condensation method from the same aqueous solutions. Synthesized silver sulfide nanopowders have a monoclinic (space group(More)
An in situ study of thermal expansion of polymorphic phases of coarse-crystalline and nanocrystalline silver sulfide - monoclinic acanthite α-Ag2S and cubic argentite β-Ag2S - has been carried out for the first time using the high-temperature X-ray diffraction method. The temperature dependencies of the unit cell parameters of acanthite and argentite in the(More)
