Copper nanoparticles have been prepared by the solvated metal atom dispersion (SMAD) method. Oxidation of the SMAD prepared copper colloids resulted in $Cu@Cu_{2}O$ core shell structures (7.7 \pm 1.8 nm) or $Cu_{2}O$ nanoparticles depending on the reaction conditions. The nano Cu, $Cu@Cu_{2}O$ core shell, and $Cu_{2}O$ particles were found to be catalytically active for the generation of hydrogen from ammonia–borane either via hydrolysis or methanolysis reaction.
