In the present study silver nanoparticles were obtained using the ability of chitosan to form chelate compounds with metal ions and taking advantage of its reducing properties. The reduction process was conducted at the temperature 60°C or applying γ radiation from 60Co cobalt source. A preliminary characteristic which allows us to realize the size of formed silver nanoparticles was made on the basis of the measurements of UV absorption and dynamic light dispersion.
