Large Scale Synthesis of Shuttle like CuO Nanocrystals by Microwave Irradiation
Nanocrystalline CuO with shuttle-morphology has been prepared conventionally by a microwave irradiation heating technique from an aqueous system in the presence of Cu(CH3COO)2• H2O and NaOH at room temperature. The X-ray powder diffraction pattern indicates that the product is indicated that the product was pure monoclinic phase of CuO. Further characterized by transmission electron microscopy, selected area electron diffraction, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and Raman spectra, the component of the products were confirmed.
