Title: Synthesis and characterization of CuO nano particles using precipitation method

A simple and efficient synthesis of CuO nanoparticles was carried out by precipitation method using copper metal chips as precursor and sodium hydroxide as a stabilizing agent at different calcinations temperatures (100°C, 150°C, and 175°C). The products were characterized by powder X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR). XRD indicated monoclinic structure of CuO. SEM indicated the variation in nanostructures with the heating temperatures and FTIR inidcated Cu-O stretching frequencies. The CuO nanostructures with the average particle size of about 16.52 nm were prepared at 100°C for 3 hr. When the calcinations temperature was increased to 150°C and 175°C, CuO nanostructures with the particle size of about 17.41 nm, and 18.44 nm were obtained respectively. This aqueous precipitation method can give a large scale production of CuO nanoparticles easily.
