Abstract

The present study investigates the synthesis of silver nanoparticles through the method of reverse
emulsions using the precursor of AgNO3 and the reduction agent of hydrazine. The influence of several
surfactants with different Hydrophile–Lipophile Balance (HLB) on the size distribution and morphology
of synthesized nanoparticles was also studied. The nonionic surfactants of Span 80 and PEG 1000, the
anionic surfactant of sodium dodecyl sulfate, and the cationic surfactant of cetyl-trimethyl ammonium
bromide were examined. The produced silver nanoparticles were characterized using methods of
transmission electron microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, UV–vis spectropho-
tometry, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and laser scattering analyzer.
