Copper(I) chloride nanowires have been synthesized by heating the salt in the presence of copper zeolite X (FAU structure type). Their structure and composition were studied by powder X-ray diffraction, transmission electron microscopy and energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy. Wire growth was found to be dependent on a number of factors, the most important being the temperature of the reaction. The mechanism of wire growth, involving the occlusion of CuCl within the zeolite pores, is discussed.
