Both optical and antibacterial performances are important features of silver nanoparticle (Ag NP) dispersions. Ag NPs, dispersed in water and ethanol, are currently two of the most useful sources of nano silver. We have studied the optical performances of low concentrations of well-dispersed Ag NPs in water, ethanol, butyl acetate, and a mixture of water and glycerin, using UV-Vis spectra at low NP concentrations. We found that the color, surface plasmon resonance (SPR) peak intensities, positions and full widths at half maxima (FWHM) vary with the liquid medium. The concentration-dependent absorptions of the dispersions follow the Beer-Lambert Law, although the concentration/molar absorption coefficient varies with medium and extent of aggregation.
