Summary Uniform silver submicrospheres were synthesized under ambient conditions, through reduction of silver nitrate using ascorbic acid as a reducing agent and Tween 20 as a stabilizer. The silver submicroparticles exhibited strong catalytic activity for the reduction of 4-nitrophenol by sodium borohydride (NaBH4). Significantly, the aggregates of a few silver submicroparticles can be used as surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) substrate to improve markedly the Raman signal of crystal violet. The morphologies of silver submicroparticles can be controlled by changing reaction conditions. The formation process of silver submicroparticles was monitored by time-resolved extinction spectroscopy. The influences of concentrations and molar ratios of reaction reagents on the formation of silver submicroparticles are discussed.
