Introduction Humans have coexisted with nanoparticles—both generated in natural processes (erosion, volcanic eruptions), or artificial (combustion)—from immemorial time. In general, they were composed by common metal oxides

Restricted access

Introduction Copper nanoparticles have been studied extensively because of their excellent electrical conductivity, interesting catalytic- and electro-catalytic properties, and low cost in comparison with gold and silver
