Nanopowder technologies are used for the purpose of the progressive miniaturization of microelectronics and reduction of production costs, the production of which use conventional expensive metal powders. Copper nanopowder - a powder of copper nanoparticles, the chemical composition of which varies from the technical specifications, which adheres to the manufacturer, and the purpose of the finished product. The size of nanoparticles often ranges from 20 nm to 100 nm. Depending on the average particle size of the copper nanopowder passport contains a reference to the arithmetic average particle size or size range. In addition to the classification of the size of nanoparticles of copper nanopowder from different manufacturers vary in their chemical composition. The amount of copper contained in the powder ranges from 90% to 98-99%. In the case of 90 percent of copper in the remaining 9% - copper oxide accounts for only 1% - by impurities and gases. Impurities shall not be more than 2% by weight. High-purity copper nanopowder will be considered with the content of impurities is less than 0.3%. Suitable powder of copper nanoparticles in the electrical industry, in mechanical engineering and instrument making, the production of cars and aircraft, in pharmacology and cosmetology, in the chemical industry. Here are just a part of the use of examples: -in an effective catalyst, characterized by high selectivity (eg, methanol synthesis); -in the manufacture of electrically conductive metal coatings and non-metals; -to manufacture electroconductive paste used including microelectronics; -in a raw material in the manufacture of copper composite nanomaterials; -like additive in drugs and cosmetics; -to reagent restorative action (for example, as an additive for lubricating mechanical equipment - such lubrication ensures self-healing worn and / or damaged parts).
