A Facile Route to Prepare Hydrophilic Copper Nanoparticles and their Thermal Conductivities
Well-dispersed and hydrophilic copper nanoparticles have been synthesized from an organometallic precursor in an organic (or oil) phase. There are two layers coated on the surface of the copper nanoparticles. The coating layer can not be dissolved or rinsed off by organic media. The changing of viscosity and enhancement of the thermal conductivity of copper nanofluids is also presented.
