The reactivity of copper nanopowders produced by an electric explosion of a conductor or mechanochemically was studied. Oxidation of isopropylbenzene was used as a model reaction. The dependence of the oxygen uptake rate on the specific surface area of a copper nanopowder and on the method used for its production is discussed. A possible mechanism of isopropylbenzene oxidation in the presence of copper nanopowders is suggested.
