Copper oxide (CuO) was synthesized on glass substrates using hydrothermal method. Heating time and precursor concentration were found to largely affect the morphology and size of CuO microstructures formed. Material characterization was performed using X-ray Diffraction and Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy. FEGSEM was employed to determine the morphology of CuO structures grown on the substrates. 3D flower-like microstructures were formed from nanorods and nameplates. The as-prepared CuO microstructures all showed good catalytic activity for the degradation of methylene blue (MB) in presence of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2).
