Preparation and study of polyacryamide-stabilized silver nanoparticles through a one-pot process.

A one-pot route was illustrated to synthesize stable well-dispersed silver colloids stabilized by polyacrylamide on a large scale. Reduction of silver ions and polymerization of acrylamide occurred almost simultaneously in the absence of a commonly used reducing agent and initiator. A possible mechanism for the formation of silver nanoparticles with bimodal… CONTINUE READING
