The preparation of silver nanoparticles by the reduction of AgNO 3 with hydrazine in Igepal CO-520/cyclohexane reverse micelle solutions has been studied. Transmission electron microscope, electron diffraction, and X-ray diffraction pattern analyses revealed the resultant particles to be silver. The average size of the synthesized nanoparticles first increased and thereafter approached a constant value with increased molar ratio of water to Igepal CO 520 and with increasing concentration of AgNO3.
