Abstract

Well-defined palladium and silver dendritic nanostructures were synthesized using Paney nickel as the template and reducing agent with the assistance of ultrasonic wavelet at room temperature and ambient pressure. It was found that the template and ultrasonic waves play important roles in the formation of well-defined dendritic structures. The DLA mechanism was introduced for the nucleation and growth of dendritic structures.
