In this paper a methodology of chemical synthesis of copper nanoparticles stabilized with surfactant cetylpyridinium chloride (CPC) micelles has been developed. By varying of the volume of a reduction agent hydrazine hydrate (HH) and value of pH of the reactionary environment the optimum conditions for synthesis of copper nanoparticles with a stable size ranging from 40 to 80 nm were found. The copper nanoparticles obtained by this methodology have a widely perspective for use in such fields as medicine, chemistry, electronics (Langmuir-Blodgett films with conductive properties). The synthesized copper nanoparticles were characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and UV-visible spectroscopy.
