In the last decades, interest has significantly increased to to studying of nanodimensional particles, in particular, nanoparticles of various metals. In the first stage it is connected with the fact that nanoworld objects significantly differ
the properties from macroobjects. Besides, there is a possibility of application of nanoparticles for receiving medical and biological medicines. In this study, we synthesized silver nanoparticles with various size and UV-VIS spectrophotometry,
“Master Sizer” and “Zeta Sizer” tools characterized the nano species; we have conducted a simple and rapid one-pot synthesis method to generate nine colloids of Ag-NPs in different concentrations of TSCD and FSH. In this one-pot synthesis
method, we utilized citrate as capping groups to stabilize the NPs and FeSO4•7H2O to control the formation of shapes of NPs.
