    Abstract: The science and technology in nanoscale have attracted considerable attention in the last years; the expected impact of thenanostructured materials can improve the quality of life. The nanoparticles are thermodynamically unstable and have a natural tendency to aggregate and growth. Therefore, the great current challenge consists precisely in the preparation of stable and monodisperse nanomaterials, with regard to both size and the form of particles, which can be manipulated, scattered, deposited upon substrates without losing their characteristics. So they can be efficiently used in technology and biomedical applications, the nanostructured materials with the Silver nanoparticles (AgNp’s), should be able to remain stable for long periods, without loss of its properties, or structural modifications. This way, the search for new synthesis methods or functionalization focused on increasing the chemistry stability of nanoparticles it has become an important subject of research and study. The lack of planning it is often the cause of failure of an investigation; however, rare are the researchers who apply the statistic before making their experiments. This requires a set of observations and planning of experiments it is therefore, essential to indicate the design in which the verified hypothesis. The hypotheses are verified with the use of statistical analysis methods that depend on the manner in which the observations were obtained. Therefore, design factorial and analysis of results are linked closely and should be used in sequence in the scientific research of different areas of knowledge. Before that, the objective of this work is to perform the AgNp’s synthesis applying factorial design to set a trend and control of wavelength.
