Supported metal hydrides can be use as heterogeneous catalysts for production of ammonia from nitrogen and hydrogen. Copernicum hydride is considered as one of the many suitable metal hydrides: Heterogeneous Catalysts/Process Based On Supported/Grafted Transition Metal Hydrides For Ammonia Formation From Nitrogen And Hydrogen (2019).

Nanoparticles can be introduced to the body to enhance the effectiveness of low intensity focussed ultrasound (LIFU) in the treatment of certain cancers, for example.

In an unusual description of an invention, copernicum is listed as one of the many metals that is NOT in any of the compositions of such nanoparticles: Nanoparticles Sequentially Exposed To Low Intensity Acoustic Waves For Medical Or Cosmetic Applications (2019).
