The synthesis of stable, monodisperse, shaped copper nanoparticles has been difficult, partially because of copper's propensity for oxidation. This article reports the findings of an investigation of a synthetic route for the synthesis of size-controllable and potentially shape-controllable molecularly capped copper nanoparticles. The approach involved the manipulation of reaction temperature for the synthesis of copper nanoparticles in organic solvents in the presence of amine and acid capping…

The results suggest that the pH plays a key role for the formation of pure copper nanoparticles, whereas the concentration of PAA is important for controlling the size and geometric shape of the nanoparticles.
Controlled Synthesis of Narrow-Dispersed Copper Nanoparticles
A controlled synthesis method for preparing narrow-dispersed copper nanoparticles, using water and ethylene glycol as the reaction media respectively, has been reported. In order to obtain pure-phase
Shape-Selective Formation of Monodisperse Copper Nanospheres and Nanocubes via Disproportionation Reaction Route and Their Optical Properties
Synthesis of stable and monodisperse Cu nanocrystals of controlled morphology has been a long-standing challenge. In this Article, we report a facile disproportionation reaction approach for the
Copper nanoparticles of well-controlled size and shape: a new advance in synthesis and self-organization.
Evidence is obtained that OYA allows the selective adsorption of chloride ions derived from the copper precursor on the different crystallographic faces during the growth of CuNPs that induces the formation of anisotropic shapes such nanorods or triangles.
Cu nanoparticles of low polydispersity synthesized by a double-template method and their stability
Cu nanoparticles of well-defined size and stability were synthesized with the aid of a double-template method. The templates consisted of sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) aggregates combined with and
