Title
Synthesis, characterization and electrocatalytic activity of silver nanorods towards the reduction of benzyl chloride
Abstract

This paper describes a simple method of synthesizing silver nanorods using the polyol process, where propylene glycol serves both as a reducing agent and as a solvent in the presence of a capping reagent such as polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP). The diameter and length of silver nanorods could be controlled by changing the AgNO3/PVP ratio. The end-to-end assembly of the silver nanorods was found. The silver nanorods were characterized by using scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction and absorption spectroscopy. The catalytic activity of a glassy carbon electrode with Ag nanorods exhibits extraordinary electrocatalytic activities towards the electro-reduction of benzyl chloride.
