ABSTRACT:
A simple theoretical model based on the Lindemann’s criterion has been explored to account for size dependent cohesive energy, melting temperature and Debye temperature of silver (Ag) nanoparticles (NPs). It is found that these thermodynamic properties of Ag NPs show a nonlinear variation with respect to the particle size and agreed reasonably with reported experimental results. The prediction of model is more reliable with other thermodynamic models. This supports the validity of the model explored.
