Nanostructured copper oxide semiconductors : a perspective on materials, synthesis methods and applications
Zoolfakar, Ahmad Sabirin, Rani, Rozina A., Morfa, Anthony J., O'Mullane, Anthony P., & Kalantar-zadeh, Kourosh (2014) Nanostructured copper oxide semiconductors : a perspective on materials, synthesis methods and applications. Journal of Materials Chemistry C, 2(27), pp. 5247-5270.
The oxides of copper (CuxO) are fascinating materials due to their remarkable optical, electrical, thermal and magnetic properties. Nanostructuring of CuxO can further enhance the performance of this important functional material and provide it with unique properties that do not exist in its bulk form. Three distinctly different phases of CuxO, mainly CuO, Cu2O and Cu4O3, can be prepared by numerous synthesis techniques including, vapour deposition and liquid phase chemical methods. In this article, we present a review of nanostructured CuxO focusing on their material properties, methods of synthesis and an overview of various applications that have been associated with nanostructured CuxO.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
