Electroexplosive copper nanopowders with dispersion 3.2, 5.0, 6.8, and 12.0 m2 g-1 were dissolved in distilled water, physiological (saline) solution, and phosphate buffer. From experimentally determined concentrations of dissolved copper and pH of the solution kinetic curves were constructed and kinetic and thermodynamic analysis was performed of the possible chemical reactions. The influence of the powder dispersion and the nature of solvents on the kinetic parameters of dissolution were considered.
