  journal={Micro \& Nano Letters},
A simple and cost-effective method for preparing copper particles is reported, which has the ability to shape the particle without using any capping agent or hard template. These samples were characterised by a variety of techniques, such as scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, energy-dispersive X-ray detector and UV-vis spectrometer. In the synthetic procedure, the reaction temperatures and surfactant content exerted a strong influence on the shape of copper particles. In addition…

Microstructure analysis suggests that the superplastic extensibility of the nc copper originates from a deformation mechanism dominated by grain boundary activities rather than lattice dislocation, which is also supported by tensile creep studies at room temperature.
