Findings on Crystal Growth Described by S. Krishnan and Colleagues (Low dimensional CuO nanocomposites synthesis by pulsed wire explosion and their crystal growth mechanism)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Health & Medicine Week -- New research on Crystal Growth is the subject of a report. According to news originating from Seremban, Malaysia, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "Synthesis of low-dimensional CuO nanocrystals with high aspect ratio using a pulsed wire explosion method in de-ionized water is reported. This is an energy efficient and eco-friendly physical synthesis method."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research, "Low-dimensional transition metal oxide nanoparticles have been widely researched for their unique current transport properties. We have successfully synthesized shape controlled copper nanocomposites using a novel pulsed wire explosion method without chemical additives. A possible particle growth mechanism corresponding to the exploding medium temperature is suggested. We have shown that surface condition of the nanoparticles, inter-particle electrostatic interaction and thermodynamic stability of the medium determine the final particle morphology."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The ability to control the nanoparticles morphology and understanding of the crystal growth mechanism would facilitate in the synthesis of low-dimensional nanoparticles of various transition metal oxides for future electronic applications."
