Shaped silver nanoparticles with spheres, rods, and dendrites have been prepared by a pulse sonoelectrochemical technique from an aqueous solution of AgNO3 in the presence of nitrilotriacetate N(CH2COOH)3-NTA. The silver nanoparticles were characterized by using transmission electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, and absorption spectroscopy. The effects of electrosonic time on particle shape have been discussed. It was found that the concentration of AgNO3 and NTA affects the shape of the nanoparticles.
