Abstract: Various kinds of CuO nanostructures such as rectangular nanoparticles, nanodisks, flower-shaped structures composed of nanosheets, nanoparticles, etc were grown via hydrothermal growth process at low temperatures of 110-170 °C. It was found by detailed experiments that the morphologies of grown products are strongly depend on the process parameters, i.e. pH values of the solution, temperature, reaction time, concentrations of the reactants and additives used in the synthesis process. It was researched that by controlling the reaction parameters, desired morphologies of CuO nanostructures can be obtained by hydrothermal process. The grown CuO nanostructures were analyzed in detail in terms of their morphological, structural and other properties. The morphological properties were examined by field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM) and Transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The structural and other properties of the synthesized nanostructures were evaluated by using high-resolution TEM (HRTEM) equipped with selected area electron diffraction (SAED) pattern, Energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS), Elemental mapping, Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy, UV-Visible (UV) spectroscopy, X- ray diffraction (XRD), Raman-scattering, etc. It is expected that the presented research will be very useful for the controlled growth of CuO nanostructures by hydrothermal process.
