Facile Synthesis of Colloidal CuO Nanocrystals for Light-Harvesting Applications
(a) TEM image of CuO NCs, (b) X-ray diffractograms of CuO NCs, with comparison between 2 syntheses: one with water added and the other without any water. The black lines represent literature values for CuO (JPCD# 05-0661). Inset shows a dispersion of CuO NCs in a solvent mixture of methanol and chloroform.
