Synthesis of copper nanoshales from a Triton™ X-100/cyclohexane/water ternary microemulsion system
Keywords:metal nanostructure, reverse micelle system, copper nanostructure, water in-oil microemulsion
A shale-like copper nanostructure was synthesized for the first time from a water-in-oil microemulsion medium comprising Triton™ X-100/cyclohexane/water ternary system. The nanoshales were synthesized through chemical reduction by hydrazinium hydroxide in alkaline medium. The nanoshales were characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis.
