    The D-glucose serves to reduce the silver from Ag1- to Ag1+. The sodium citrate first reduces Ag1+ to Ag, and then functions to bind with the particle surface of silver nitrate particles to allow them to interact. Finally, silver nitrate can aggregate. The silver nitrate combined with D-glucose, sodium citrate, and heat forms an aggregate. The citrate binds with the particle coating and dispels the repulsion between silver nitrate nanoparticles. The nanoparticles then form an aggregate-- a loose…

Many of these polymer, especially those with a conjugated pi-bond system ,often yield higher conductivity once having undergone the doping process. Polymers are typically insulators due to their very high resistivity .Insulators have tightly bound electrons so that nearly no electron flow occurs ,and they…
