Abstract: © 2016 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. Multiple nanoplate-like CuO and Ce-doped CuO nanoleaves were synthesized by a simple co-precipitation of Cu(NO3)2·6H2O and Ce(NO3)3·6H2O in alkaline solutions. In this research, the as-synthesized samples were monoclinic CuO with high crystalline degree. Undoped CuO was composed of multiple nanoplate clusters, which were broken and transformed into nanoleaves for Ce-doped CuO samples. The undoped CuO and 3 mol% Ce-doped CuO were applied for photodegradation of methylene blue under UV light. The last showed the best photocatalytic performance to degrade the methylene blue dye.
