Silver nanowires have been synthesized by a modified polyol method, in the presence of silver chloride clusters previously obtained by the reaction between the silver precursor and sodium chloride. The effect of injection temperature and preparation conditions of silver chloride clusters and polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP)/AgNO3 molar ratio have been studied. Nanowires with an average diameter of 50 nm and aspect ratios above 100 have been obtained when the silver chloride clusters were formed at room temperature in the absence of PVP and injected into the reaction mixture at 160°C..
