Use copper clamps when attaching to a strut. You do not want dis-similair metals.

When just attaching to a joist then any plastic clamp is good.

I like and use these.

The copper clamps need to be used with vinyl-coated strut. Easier to simply wrap the copper pip with the heavy mil plastic tape made for the purpose. The tape is usually about 2 inches wide and one wrap is usually sufficient.
