Copper(II) Oxide, CuO nanoparticle dispersion

Copper Oxide nanoparticles (CuO) is the oxide of copper(II) that in its nanocrystalline form finds many applications as a heterogeneous and electro-catalyst, especially for the valorization of CO2.

We at Particular Materials synthesize nano CuO and we produce dispersions with excellent stability, monodispersity and fully disaggregated state.

Technical Information

Our Copper oxide (CuO) nanoparticles portfolio consist of particles with diameters ranging around 40 nanometers and find applications in several industries.

CuO nanoparticles are generally insoluble in aqueous (water) solutions and highly stable in solid matrices, making them useful in simple ceramic structures for advanced electronics and in highly flexible components in aerospace and electrochemical applications such as fuel cells in which they exhibit ionic conductivity.

Oxide compounds are not conductive to electricity. However, certain perovskite structured oxides are electronically conductive finding application in the cathode of solid oxide fuel cells and oxygen generation systems.

In order to be able to take advantage of the various properties of Copper Oxide (CuO) nanoparticles, significant care needs to be taken in controlling size, monodispersity and crystalline structure.

We at Particular Materials synthesize nano CuO and we produce dispersions with excellent stability, monodispersity, crystalline purity and fully disaggregated state.

The CuO nanoparticles are available in two sizes:

  • 10 nm
  • 20 nm

Typical concentration in water are, by weight (w/w%):

  • 1%
  • 5%
  • 10%
  • 20%

Copper oxide (CuO) nanoparticles can also be provided as nanopowder.

Related Applications and Industries

Other key applications of copper oxide nanoparticles are as follows:

  • semiconductors, solar energy transformation, and high-tech superconductors
  •  catalyst for the rate of combustion in rocket propellant
  • photoconductors and photothermal systems
  • Gas sensors, magnetic storage media, near-infrared tilters
  • used as a cathode of solid oxide fuel cells and oxygen generation systems.

A peculiar characteristic of all nanoparticles is the high surface area to volume ratio, that allows a considerably higher binding capacity and excellent dispersibility of NPs in solutions.
