Differently shaped Cu nanostructures were encapsulated within graphite shells by using a simple chemical method that involved the catalytic decomposition of acetylene over Cu catalysts that were supported on different smectite clay surfaces. The Cu nanostructures could be separated from the support and remained stable for months. The choice of clay support influenced the shape and size of the Cu nanostructures.
