We report our investigation of roles of polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) as a high-performance capping agent in synthesizing silver nanowires (AgNWs) using polyol method. For this purpose, we varied the concentration of silver nitrate (AgNO ), from 0.3 M to 1.0 M, and molar ratios of [PVA:AgNO 3 3 ] from 2 to 6. The UV-vis spectra show the AgNWs growth optimally at a molar ratio of 4.5 with the absorbance peaks of 378 nm and 380 nm. Meanwhile, from XRD patterns, it was found that the crystal structure of the AgNWs can be identified as a face-centered cubic (fcc) with a lattice constant according to the spacing distance between the {111} planes of 4.087 Å. Finally, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy TEM images show the diameter and length of the AgNRs are 150 to 230 nm and 50 to 120 µm, respectively. These results show that the AgNWs synthesized using PVA having a long size.
