Highly dispersed copper oxide (CuO) nanoparticles had been successfully prepared by a hydrothermal technique where different adding temperatures of NaOH were taken. The as-prepared CuO nanoparticles were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and Raman spectroscopy. The results showed that the adding temperature of NaOH has an important influence on the shape and size of CuO nanocrystals The influence of reaction conditions on morphology of CuO nanocrystals was discussed. Furthermore, different shapes of obtained CuO nanocrystals exhibit different Raman properties.
