Orthophosphate silver with superior quality and quantum size effect is elaborated by precipitation from phosphate precursors. The powders were investigated by X-ray diffraction, SEM-EDS, FTIR, thermal analysis, and diffuse reflectance. Spherical like Ag3PO4 particles with size between 0.8 to 10 μm were obtained. The powders crystallize in a cubic symmetry and the smaller crystallites are obtained with Na2HPO 4. The optical gap, determined from the diffuse reflectance spectra through the Kubelka-Munk function, lies between 2.05 and 2.30 eV. © 2013 The Authors.
