The investigation and application of lead-free solders bearing micro/nano-sized particles were reviewed synthetically. Moreover, the effects of additives such as metals, compounds, ceramics, carbon nano-tube, polymer on lead-free solders were reported and analyzed synchronously. Based on the works on microstructures, interface structure, melting temperature, mechanical property and creep behaviors, the effects of particles on properties and microstructures of solders were discussed systematically. In addition, the problems and difficulty in the process of the applications of lead-free solders bearing particles were analyzed synchronously, some suggestions were put forward on how to solve those problems mentioned above, and the prospect on lead-free solders with particle reinforcement was analyzed.
