2Analyzed using electrophoretic light scattering method. The data were analyzed using Smoluchowski approximation.
3Hydrodynamic size is based on dynamic light scattering (DLS) measurement. pdi: polydispersity index.
4% nanomaterial dissolved was analyzed from ultracentrifuged extracts of 36 mg/L (Ag spheres) or 15 mg/L (Ag nanowires) dispersions by GF-AAS.
5Dynamic light scattering (DLS) measurement is not relevant for rod-shaped particles.
