Cu nanowires are used for fabrication of high- performance transparent electrodes because of their high conductivity and optical transmittance [5–9]. These transparent electrodes are essential components for touchscreens, solar cells, organic light-emitting diodes, and many other optoelec- tronic devices. In addition, Cu has the second highest electrical conductivity of all the metals and is more abundant and less expensive compared to gold (Au) and silver (Ag). However, due to the difﬁculty in reducing Cu ions to metallic Cu and the susceptibility of Cu nanostructures to oxidation upon exposure to air and water, synthesis of Cu nanostructures with high stability and anisotropy remains a challenge . Therefore, extensive research efforts have been made to fabricate Cu nanocrystals with well-deﬁned facets and controllable shape. Although a few such methods have been developed to synthesize uniform Cu nanoparticles [11–15] and
