Paper Title:
Microwave-Assisted Preparation of Cu2O Octahedral Microcrystals
  Abstract

In this paper, we reported a facile microwave-assisted green chemical route to prepare pure, uniform, and monodispersed Cu2O octahedron wrapped by the {111} faces by using glucose as a reducing agent. X-ray diffraction (XRD), energy dispersive X-ray spectrometry(EDX) and field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM) were used to characterize the as-synthesized products. It was found that the morphology and structure of Cu2O crystals were greatly affected by the concentration of NaOH. A solid-solution-solid growth mechanism was possibly proposed on the basis of the comparative experimental results.
