Copper Dispersion has other unique magnetic and super hydrophobic properties. These nanostructures show very promising application in heterogeneous catalysis in the complete conversion of hydrocarbons into carbon dioxide, enhancement of thermal conductivity of nanofluids, nanoenergetic materials, and super-hydrophobic surfaces or anode materials for lithium ion batteries. copper nanoparticles dispersions have unique optical and semiconductor properties allowing the application of copper oxide nanoparticles in many industrials applications. Controlling the size and morphology of the nanoparticles dispersions involve one phase in either a batch or continuous flow reactor. Bacteria, yeasts, and viruses are rapidly killed on metallic copper surfaces, and the term “contact killing” has been coined for this process. While the phenomenon was already known in ancient times, it is currently receiving renewed attention. This is due to the potential use of copper as an antibacterial material in health care settings.
Certain Gram-positive bacteria, such as members of the Bacilli and Clostridia, form endospores which can resist heat, radiation, desiccation, denaturing chemicals, etc. Thus, endospores pose a real challenge to aseptic procedures. Clostridium difficile is an important pathogen of the group of spore-forming bacteria and leads to diseases like diarrhea and colitis. Excretion of endospores by infected persons might contaminate surfaces and generate a long-term reservoir for transmission. In spite of the robustness of these spores, killing by metallic copper has been reported in some cases.
