REBOLLO-PLATA, B. et al. Growth of metal micro and/or nanoparticles utilizing arc-discharge immersed in liquid. Rev. mex. fis. [online]. 2014, vol.60, n.3, pp.227-232. ISSN 0035-001X.

In this paper, we present results on the metal microcrystals and nanoparticles of Al, Cu and Al-Cu composite growth by arc-discharge with the system immersed in distilled water, under different conditions and varying the current from 50 to 150 A with constant voltage (27 V). These structures are characterized using X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, Raman spectroscopy and Uv-Vis spectroscopy. Our results demonstrate that metal micro and nanostructures can be prepared at low cost with high quality.

Keywords : Metal microcrystals and/or nanoparticles; distilled water; arc-discharge immersed in liquid.
