Abstract

A one-step route has been designed to synthesize CuO nanostructures using basic cupric carbonate (CuCO3·Cu(OH)2) as a precursor. The crystal structure and phase purity of as-obtained CuO was characterized by X-ray diffraction. The elemental compositions of samples were analyzed by energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy. Scanning electron microscopy and transmission electron microscopy were used to analyze the structure and morphology of as-obtained CuO. The bandgap energy of CuO particles produced was assessed by UV–Vis spectroscopy. The possible formation processes of CuO are discussed. Furthermore, the catalytic activity of prepared CuO particles was investigated in the degradation of methylene blue.
