The melting temperature and melting enthalpy of SnAg and SnAgCu (SAC) nanocrystals with diameters of approximately 30 nm was determined and, by means of Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) a depression melting temperature of 7–10 °C was observed for both systems. The new experimental results were compared to the predicted values as well as available datasets. X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis was performed to characterize the as-prepared and heat treated samples. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM and FE-SEM) analysis was carried out to study the morphology, microstructure and phase evolution of the as-synthesized particles before and after the heating process.

Abstract

The melting temperature and melting enthalpy of SnAg and SnAgCu (SAC) nanocrystals with diameters of approximately 30 nm was determined and, by means of Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) a depression melting temperature of 7–10 °C was observed for both systems. The new experimental results were compared to the predicted values as well as available datasets. X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis was performed to characterize the as-prepared and heat treated samples. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM and FE-SEM) analysis was carried out to study the morphology, microstructure and phase evolution of the as-synthesized particles before and after the heating process.
