High chemical reactivity of silver nanoparticles toward hydrochloric acid.

Li L, et al. J Colloid Interface Sci. 2006.

Abstract

High chemical reactivity of Ag nanoparticles was observed in the reaction with hydrochloric acid: Ag (nanoparticles)+ HCl-->AgCl + H2; the reaction product silver chloride was characterized by X-ray powder diffraction to give a direct evidence for the reaction which has been proved impossible for the bulk Ag.
