The reduction of copper ions to get stable copper nanoparticles can be attributed to the presence of biologically active compounds present in the leaf broth of Azadirachta indica. 22 It was found in this study that the rate of production varied linearly with percentage of leaf broth. The other optimum conditions for the synthesis are; [CuCl 2] =7.5 X 10-3 M, pH =6.6 and temperature = 85 o C.

##### Extracting Gold HowStuffWorks

Leaching dissolves the gold out of the ore using a chemical solvent. The most common solvent is cyanide, which must be combined with oxygen in a process known as carbon-in-pulp. As the cyanide and oxygen react chemically, gold in the pulp dissolves. When workers introduce small carbon grains to the tank, the gold adheres to the carbon.
