- ... A simple, room-temperature approach for the synthesis of stable microparticles of copper in a lyotropic liquid crystal (LLC) template is described. The LLC phase having a hexagonal ordering is prepared using a mixture of non-ionic surfactant triton-X 100 and water in the ratio of 40:60 wt%. A controlled growth of copper particles is achieved in this medium by reducing cupric chloride using hydrazi ...
