SUMMARY & AIM OF RESEARCH During recent years, nanomaterials have received increasing attention in advanced technology due to their outstanding mechanical, physical& chemical properties compare with their corresponding bulk counterparts.

. These properties are affected by many parameters such as size, surface area, shape, chemical composition, morphology& structure. Therefore, detailed studies should be taken place to investigate new nanostructured materials. Because of their high electrical& thermal conductivity, copper& its alloys have

found widespread applications, such as resistance welding electrodes, high voltage switches, motor commutators, continuous casting moulds& others. The required properties of these products are the high mechanical properties& high electric& thermal conductivity. Also, its often required that properties remain stable

in different operating conditions,& often also that they are resistant to variant force, current& thermal loads. Some compromise in this regard can be achieved using precipitation hardened alloys. However, a serious drawback of these materials is instability of their mechanical properties& electric& thermal conductivity

at elevated& high temperature, resulting from temperature instability of their microstructure. Therefore, a rising trend to use new copper-based functional materials, such as materials dispersion-hardened, usually by the particles of oxides, carbides& others, obtained by powder metallurgy techniques..
