Copper nanoparticles have been synthesized by anodic oxidation through a simple electrolysis process employing de-oxy ribonucleic acid (DNA) as electrolyte. Platinum was taken as cathode and copper as anode. The applied voltage was 4 V and the electrolysis was performed for duration of 1 h. The copper nanoparticles were prepared in situ from the electron beam irradiation on residues of electrolyte consisting of DNA and copper particles: DNA (Cu) complexes. The size of the nanoparticles ranges between 5–50 nm. A tentative explanation has been given for the formation of copper nanoparticles.
