Abstract

n this study, the Cu Schiff base complex was successfully synthesized through a facile and rapid method. Then, the complex was calcinated at 700 °C for 2 h under air atmosphere leading to CuO nanoparticles. The synthesized CuO nanoparticles were characterized by FT-infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD), and energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS). The XRD analysis confirmed that the samples were crystallized in the monoclinic CuO phase.The average crystallite size of the nano-sized of CuO nanoparticles was obtained at about 68 nm as determined by Debye- Scherrer equation from the data of X-ray diffraction.
