A method to obtain new copper-rhenium composites on a steel substrate using a complex of dirhenium(III) cis-tetrachlorodi--propionate with axial N,N-dimethylacetamide (cis-[Re2Cl4(C2H5COO)2(DMAA)2]) and copper metal as starting materials for low-temperature chemical vapor deposition, was investigated. The obtained copper-rhenium composite was studied by scanning electron microscopy and X-ray spectroscopy. According to the elemental analysis the composite contained 71.53% Fe, 25.45% Cu, 1.99% Re, and 1.04% Sn.
