Abstract

Transition metal oxides have various interesting properties, especially nanostructures of the Copper (II) Oxides (CuO) have special magnetic properties and larger surface area which enhance the applications of the CuO in various fields. In this study, CuO nanoparticles supported on Halloysite Nanotubes (HNTs) via an in-situ glycine nitrate process was successfully synthesized by templating on chitosan. Effects of calcination time and temperature are fully elaborated by detail charactrizations including, FESEM, FTIR, TGA, EDX, BET and Raman Spectroscopy. The best calcination condition was found to be at 600 C for 5 h of calcination duration. Charactrizations confirmed the presence of both HNT and CuO within the particles confirming that the in-situ synthesis of metal-oxides by supporting them on HNTs is very much feasible.
