Resumen

In this paper we study and rationalize the formation of neutral copper clusters from dimer to nonamer using the available experimental data of binding energies and electronic properties. A complete and consistent picture of the formation of copper clusters in terms of the changes in chemical potential and hardness emerges indicating that the one-atom growth reactions are mainly driven by changes in hardness. An analytic expression for the binding energy as a function of the cluster size is proposed and used to predict the growth pattern of copper clusters.
