Abstract
In recent times, copper-based nanomaterials have received lots of attention because of their potential applications as gas sensors, magnetic storage media, solar energy transformation, semiconductors and organic catalyst. The aim of present work is to synthesize CuO nanorods by using inventive sonication method and to characterize by powder XRD, particle size analyzer and TEM. The powder XRD was used for the structural identification and unit cell parameter determination of nanorods. Formation of single phasic CuO nanorods was confirmed from XRD. TEM and particle analyzer verified the nano size and shape of CuO. Nanorods were formed by preparation of CuO using sonication which was confirmed from the TEM analysis.
