Synthesis of copper nanoshales from a Triton™ X-100/cyclohexane/water ternary microemulsion system

Hossein Heli, Naghmeh Sattarahmady, Fatmeh Pourbahman,


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.
