Supplementary Material

Fig. S1 HRTEM images of Cu2O octahedral particle obtained at 20°C. The surface of octahedral particle was not smooth, which has been piled up by approximately 5 nm ultrafine particles like fish scales.

Fig. S2 HRTEM images of Cu2O/Cu composites obtained at 65°C for 15 min, the inserts corresponding to the white marked regions. (a) The lattice fringes have interplanar spacing of 0.247 nm, which is in agreement with the cubic Cu2O (111) planes; (b) The lattice fringes have interplanar spacing of 0.209 nm, which is in agreement with the cubic Cu (111) planes.

Fig. S3 XRD patterns of samples synthesized for various time at 65°C. As expected, the content of Cu in the Cu2O/Cu composite increased with increasing the reaction time to produce a range of composite with controllable composition.
