Overview | Product Information | Related Products

Silver nanowires (AgNWs), like carbon nanotubes, are one dimensional (1D) nanomaterials with diameters in the order of tens of nanometres, lengths in the order of micrometres and high aspect ratios of over 100.

Silver nanowires are known to have high electrical and thermal conductivities, high surface area, excellent optical property, great flexibility, low light extinction in the visible, flexibility, and antibacterial characteristics. Silver nanowires have been incorporated into a wide range of products from photovoltaics to biological sensors. AgNWs dispersion can be processed by solution deposition to fabricate patterned stretchable conductors with feature size as small as 50 μm.

Similar product contains PEDOT:PSS is also available at Ossila, AgNW/PEDOT:PSS for highly conductive flexible electronics.

For silver nanowire solution processing

Silver nanowires are most commonly produced with narrow size distribution and high aspect ratio by polyol method using poly(vinylpyrrolidone) (PVP) in ethylene glycol (EG) to reduce Ag+ into silver nanoparticles. With a diameter of <30 nm and length of >20 μm, a high purity  of >99.9%, and ready to use, silver nanowires water dispersion finds the following applications but not limited to.


Antibacterial applications, such as bandages, sterile medical devices, coatings for medical devices and cosmetics.
Transparent conductive electrode, such as AgNW/PEDOT:PSS composite and touch screen
Flexible electronics, such as flexible solar cells, flexible transistors, flexible OLED displays, and flexible supercapacitor
Surface enhanced spectroscopy, such as surface enhanced Raman scattering
Sensors, such as strain sensors for medical applications, and biosensors for glucose and cholesterol
