Copper Oxide nanoparticles were synthesized by simple precipitation method using copper sulphate and sodium hydroxide as a cationic and anionic precursors. Structural and optical properties were investigated by using XRD, SEM and Uv-Visible spectroscopies The XRD studies revealed that the as-synthesized CuO nanoparticles were monoclinic structure along with the (002) plane preferential orientation with fine crystalline in nature. HRSEM studies discovered the surface morphology of the CuO nanoparticles. As compared to the other nanoparticles, CuO that was synthesized through simple precipitation method demonstrated some amplification in the photocurrent. Accordingly it demonstrates that the CuO nanoparticles could be one of the hopeful candidates for the photoelectrochemical performance.
