The Role of Polyvinyl Alcohol in One-Step Chemical Synthesis of Water Based Copper Nanofluid
One-step method was developed to prepare polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) stabilized copper nanofluid in water from cupric chloride. The optimized simple process was in-situ reduction of cupric chloride to copper nanoparticles in PVA water solution under reflux. The synthesized nanofluid by this method showed better stable dispersion with smaller particle size (28 nm) in comparison to the hydrazine reduction method. Here we want to focus on the role of PVA as reducing agent as well as stabilizer for the process.
