Еlectrodeposition of silver nanoparticles on siliconesurface in dimethylformamide solutions of (NH4)[Ag(CN)2]

The article presents the results of studies of electrochemical deposition of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) on the silicon surface in dimethylformamide solutions of 0.025M; 0.05M; 0.1M (NH4)[Ag(CN)2]. Combination of a pulsed electrolysis mode and an organic aprotic solvent medium (DMF) ensures the formation of 50-150 nm spherical AgNPs with uniform distribution over the silicon surface. It is shown that the main factors influencing the morphology and size of silver nanoparticles are the value of the cathode potential, the concentration of ions [Ag(CN)2]- and the duration of electrolysis.

Palladium Deposition on Magnesium in PdCl2 Solutions in DMF

Palladium deposition on rotational magnesium disk and magnesium powder via cementation has been investigated in 0.01 M PdCl2 solutions in dimethylformamide. The reduction process started from 323–333 K without the induction period. Spheroidal microparticles of palladium and its agglomerates were found to be formed on the magnesium disk surface. Particles in the form of needles and plates by the width of 80–120 nm were formed on the surface of magnesium powder. The deposited particles are characterized by high adhesion to the substrate surface.
