In view of the fact that both Ag and AgX are face-centered cubic in crystal structure, the structure and preparation of regular (cubic and octahedral) and tabular AgX nanoparticles are compared with those of Ag nanoparticles to serve as references for the latter. Light absorption due to the surface plasmon resonance, electronic structure, catalysis for reduction of AgX grains, and Becquerel effect (extension of AgX response to longer wavelength by Ag nanoparticles on the grains) are described to serve as references for the property and performance of Ag nanoparticles on various substrates in light of the electron transfer across various interfaces.

Keywords: Ag nanoparticles; surface plasmon resonance; catalysis; tabular nanoparticles; Becquerel effect
