Preparation, characterization and catalytic property of CuO nano/microspheres via thermal decomposition of cathode-plasma generating Cu2(OH)3NO3 nano/microspheres.


CuO nano/microspheres with a wide diametric distribution were prepared by thermal decomposition of Cu(2)(OH)(3)NO(3) nano/microspheres formed in a simple asymmetric-electrode based cathodic-plasma electrolysis. The morphological, componential, and structural information about the two kinds of spheres were characterized in detail by SEM, TEM, EDX, XPS and… (More)
