Silver Nanowires from Merck

Silver nanowires (AgNWs) are 1-dimensional silver-based nanostructures with a diameter of 60 nm and a length of 10 m. They can be synthesized by the reduction of silver nitrate (AgNO3) in presence of silver bromide (AgBr). The arc discharge mechanism of immersed silver electrodes can also be used to prepare them.

AgNWs have outstanding electrical, optical, and mechanical properties, making them a good option for flexible electronics applications including solar cells and film heaters.

Silver nanowires have a wide range of conductive, optical, and anti-microbial applications, including touchscreen displays, medical imaging, and sterile clothing.
