Submicron silver particles were synthesized by chemical reduction with various room temperature ionic liquids. The size and distribution of silver particles were significantly affected by the anion type of ionic liquids and this is mainly attributed to the different abilities of the anions to coordinate with the silver particle, leading to various coagulation of silver particles. Among ionic liquids, 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium hexafluorophosphate was the most effective to synthesize submicron silver particles.
