The possibility of electroprecipitation of copper powder via cathodic reduction of an electrolyte solution containing copper(II) nitrate and dimethyl sulfoxide is reported. The physico-chemical analysis of fine powder of copper received from water containing dimethyl sulfoxide solutions is conducted. Particle sizes of the copper powder are defined by a submicroscopy. The qualitative composition of copper powder is determined by results of radiographic and thermogravimetric techniques. By results of physico-chemical properties of fine copper powders prepared by an electrochemical cathodic deposition it is established that the anode material practically does not influence, their chemical composition and dimensional characteristics.
