The growth of silver bromide nanoparticles on silk yarn was achieved by sequential dipping in alternating bath of potassium bromide and silver nitrate under ultrasound irradiation. The effect of concentration, power of ultrasound irradiation and the numerous of sequential dipping steps in growth of the AgBr nanoparticles on silk yarn were studied. The samples were characterized with powder X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and Inductive Coupled Plasma (ICP). The lower average size and the higher crowded AgBr nanoparticles upon silk yarn are the result of using ultrasound irradiation.
