Experimental Investigation OfCopper Oxide Nanoparticles Synthesized Via Chemical Route And Study The Catalytic Activity In Reduction Of P-Nitrophenol


In this paper copper oxide nanoparticles are prepared by Chemical Approach and different characterization techniques like UV spectroscopy, XRD, RAMAN, TEM are used to investigate various microscopic properties of CuO nanoparticles.The initial formation of CuO nanoparticle was confirmed by UV-visible spectrophotometer. Purity, morphology and size of the Nano sized powder were studied. The XRD studies also reported.The copper powder has a high purity with mean size of particles about 16-18nm nanometer. XRD analysis confirms that the crystals, sizes are in Nano sized range.For the comparison transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and x-ray diffraction (XRD) measurements were made through JCPDS. The EDX analysis was performed to investigate the elemental analysis of synthesized materials there is good agreement between data produced by spectroscopy and the microscopic measurements.The CuO Nano powders show excellent catalytic reduction on the p-nitrophenol.
