      The impact of magnesium(II) on beryllium fluorides was systematically elucidated by 19F NMR spectroscopy. BeF42− was found to be most affected by magnesium(II) after ionic strength correction. Mechanism of the effects is proposed involving ion pair formation between Mg2+ and beryllium fluoride.

      Surfactants screening demonstrated that PVP was an satisfactory stabilizer for AgNPs, which not only was effective at low concentration (0.1%, V/V), but also could protect silver colloids from aggregation for a long period at 1 mol·L−1 NaCl, and 6 h even at 3 mol·L−1 NaCl. It is worth pointing out that aggregation induced by salt is an irreversible process, that is, if sufficient NaCl solution was first added to silver colloids, the aggregated nanoparticles would not disperse nomatter which surfactant was added. The blue and red in the syringes represent surfactants and NaCl, respectively.
