The X-ray-induced reduction of Cu2+ ions in aqueous alcoholic suspensions containing poly(allylamine) and poly(acrylic acid) leads to a specific microheterogeneous structure with microdomains (100-200 nm) enriched by small copper nanoparticles (2 to 4 nm), which are dispersed in a continuous matrix.
