    Thin films of silver are deposited from tetraphenyldioxoimidodiphosphinato silver(I) [Ag{(OPPh2)2N}]4 2H2O(1) and silver(I) triflouoroacetate CF3COOAg (2) single-source precursors (SSPs) by the aerosol-assisted (AA)CVD method. The complex (1) is a tetramer with linear and distorted tetrahedral coordination modes at silver. Two types of films, silvery and brownish, are observed from both SSPs due to the temperature gradient in the AACVD reactor. The as-deposited films are characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy dispersive X-ray (EDX) analysis, and ultraviolet/visible (UV-vis) spectroscopy methods. © 2009 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
