Copper oxide (CuO), being a transition metal oxide, finds numerous applications in current science and technology. To tailor the different properties of CuO to meet the requirements of intended applications, recent research is focused on the exploration and utilization of various synthesis routes. Hence, there is huge scope for research in the rapid facile synthesis of CuO with desirable characteristics. This work presents the synthesis of CuO in one-step using a dedicated single-mode sealed-vessel microwave reactor. The relevant properties of synthesized CuO were evaluated by characterization studies such as nitrogen gas adsorption measurement, powder X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy and thermal analysis.
