Currently the research on silver nanoparticles is of great demand owing to their antibacterial properties. One of the possibilities is the study of the silver deposition on the cellulose fibers, and more specifically of the silver nanoparticles and cellulose particles. The research was aimed at obtaining silver nanostructures by reducing ions with formaldehyde and then stabilizing them with the Pluronic solution. A suspension system containing cellulose fibers and silver nanoparticles was prepared in the basic electrolyte NaNO3. There were analyzed the following makes: pH of solutions, grain distribution and zeta potential ζ. Ag nanoparticles are largely applied in medicine, pharmacy, cosmetology and textile industry. Great interest in the nanostructures allows for developing knowledge about them, and thus creating the possibility of further improvement of their properties for subsequent applications.
