Make your own anti-fungal copper nanoparticles at home with Vitamin C

It’s DYI nanotechnology time again. Previously we’ve discussed a simple method to prepare superhydrophobic (water repellent) fabric coating and procedure to synthesize photo-catalytic zinc oxide nanoparticles. Today we will present a similarly easy method to prepare metal nanoparticles at your home with materials that are easily accessible. Infect, there’s a high chance you have everything…
