Abstract: © 2020 Trans Tech Publications Ltd, Switzerland. CuO microparticle was syntheszied by hydrothermal method. The starting precursors were used as copper (II) nitrate trihydrate (Cu(NO3)2·3H2O), nitric acid (HNO3) and sodium hydroxide (NaOH). The final pH value of the mixed solution was used 2M NaOH to adjust the pH was 8 and treated at 100-200 ºC for 4-6 h in a hydrothermal vessel. The black fine powder was obtained after dried at 100 ºC for 5 h. The phase and structure of CuO microparticle were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD). A single phase monoclinic structure synthezied by hydrothermal method at 200 ºC for 4 and 6 h was obtained without calcination steps. The morphology CuO microparticle was investigated by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). It was likely grain in shape and the particle size in range of 2.94-4.06 µm. The element composition of CuO microparticle was indicated by energy dispersive X-ray spectrometry (EDX). The chemical compositions showed the characteristic X-ray energy of copper (Kα = 0.98 keV) and oxygen (Kα = 0.53 keV), respectively. The functional group of CuO microparticle was indentified by Fourier transform spectrophotometry (FTIR). The wavenumber at 690, 514 and 437 cm-1 was corresponded to vibration of Cu-O stretching.
