Synthesis of non-oxidative copper nanoparticles

Author affiliations


A novel aqueous reduction method for the efficient synthesis of non-oxidative copper (Cu) nanopowders without using a protecting agent or introducing of an inert gas is presented. By this new method, high purity Cu nanopowders can be produced that exhibit good electrical conductivity with an electrical resistivity on the order of 10−4 Ω cm.
