Silver chloride was synthesized using a water-soluble polyelectrolyte as a capping agent. X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), atomic force microscopy (AFM) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) were employed to characterize morphology, structure and phase transition of as-prepared silver chloride. XRD, SEM and AFM confirms the formation of nanoplates of AgCl with a polygonal edge of diameter ∼250–300 nm. These nanoplates are found to be thermally stable up to its melting temperature (∼455 °C) with smaller value of melting enthalpy and higher room temperature conductivity values compared to pristine silver chloride (σNanoplate /σPristine≈104).
