X-Ray Diffraction Studies of Copper Nanopowder

By T. Theivasanthi and M. Alagar


Abstract

Copper nanopowder preparation and its X-Ray diffraction studies are reported in this paper.   Electrolytic cathode deposition method is simple and cheapest process for its preparation. Copper nanopowder has been prepared from aqueous copper sulphate solution. Wide range of experimental conditions has been adopted in this process and its X-Ray diffraction characterizations have been studied. The results confirming copper nanopowder with size below 30 nm. Uniformed size Copper nanopowder preparation, in normal room temperature is importance of this study.
