Abstract: © 2020 Trans Tech Publications Ltd, Switzerland. In this research, CuO powder was prepared by low temperature hydrothermal method. Copper (II) nitrate trihydrate (Cu(NO3)2.3H2O) and sodium hydroxide (NaOH) were used as the starting precursors. The final pH value of the mixed solution was adjusted to 9 by 4M NaOH and treated at 100 ºC and 200 ºC for 4 and 6 h. The black fine powder was obtained after dried at 80 ºC for 4 h. The phase was characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD). A single phase of monoclinic structure of CuO powder prepared by low temperature hydrothermal method at 200 ºC for 4 and 6 h was obtained without calcination step. The morphology and particle size were investigated by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The morphology was flower-like in shape and the average particle size in range of 0.3×0.7 µm. The element composition was indicated by energy dispersive X-ray spectrometry (EDX). The chemical compositions showed the characteristic X-ray energy of copper (Kα = 0.95 keV) and oxygen (Kα = 0.53 keV). The functional group was indentified by fourier transform spectrophotometry (FTIR). The wavenumber at 433-531 cm-1 was corresponded to vibration of Cu-O stretching.
