Bimetallic Al/Cu nanoparticles with Al/Cu composition 10:90, 20:80, 40:60 were produced by method of simultaneous electrical explosion of metal pairs in the argon atmosphere. Nanopowders containing 20% and 40% (mass) of aluminum interacted with water at 40-70°C and formed composite particles that were porous structures of nanopetal pseudoboehmite with nanosized copper-containing inclusions inside. Aluminum in nanopowder with Al/Cu composition 10:90 did not react with water, as far as it is in the phase of intermetallic compounds suAl2 and su4Al9. Nanocomposite produced can be used as an active component of antibacterial agents.
