Influence of solvents on the morphological properties of AgBr nano-structures prepared using ultrasound irradiation

Abbasi AR, Morsali A. Influence of solvents on the morphological properties of AgBr nano-structures prepared using ultrasound irradiation. Ultrason Sonochem 2012, 19(3):540–545.

Nano-structures of AgBr have been prepared by reaction between AgNO(3) and KBr under ultrasound irradiation. Particle sizes and morphology of nanoparticle are depending on temperature, power of sonicating, reaction time and concentration. The effects of these parameters in growth and morphology of the nano-structures have been studied. Results suggest that an increasing of temperature, sonication power and concentration led to a decreasing of particle size. The samples were characterized with powder X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM).
