Abstract

The application of micro/nanostructured materials to combustion enables distinctive chemical reactions that can be used to modulate the reaction rates. Simultaneously, combustion is capable of changing the intrinsic properties of micro/nanostructured materials based on chemical interactions in high-temperature conditions. In this work, we investigate the structural-chemical transition of copper oxide microstructures exposed to interfacially driven combustion waves. The high thermal energy and exchange of chemical compounds resulting from the instant combustion waves cause direct transition without any further processes. The precise characterization of the structural and chemical transitions in the copper oxide microstructures and chemical fuels confirm that the self-propagating combustion waves in the layered composites of Cu/Cu2O/CuO microparticle-based films and the chemical fuel layers yield the direct synthesis of Cu(OH)2 flower-like structures and nanowires. The propagation of combustion waves at the interface induces an increase of the surface temperatures over 650 °C and the direct interaction between the copper oxide and chemical compounds of the fuel layers. Further application of these interfacially driven combustion waves will contribute to the development of one-step, fast, low-cost methods for the synthesis of micro/nanostructured materials.
