- High-quality silver nanowires (AgNWs) with a small diameter of ∼20 nm and a length of ∼40 μm were prepared by using a novel organic 6-chlorohexylzinc bromide as an assistant additive. The diameter of as-synthesized AgNWs was confirmed to be strongly dependent on the dosage of 6-chlorohexylzinc bromide. Moreover, a two-dimensional (2D) transparent conductive film (TCF) with an excellent optical performance was fabricated by as-synthesized AgNWs, which has a 90.3% transmittance and low haze value of <1.0% at a sheet resistance of 48.7 Ω sq⁻¹.
