Abstract : The transient species Ag(0), formed in the reduction of Ag(+) by hydrated electrons, may be photodissociated again by light in the absorption band of Ag(0) centered at 315 nm. It suggests that this band is a charge-transfer-to-solvent band. The photon energy threshold for photoionization of Ag(0)(3.0 eV) is substantially smaller than the vacuum photoelectric work function of silver metal (4.5 eV). (Modified author abstract)
