Abstract

Cu2O microparticles with three different morphology were prepared by a green, facile and additive free microwave synthesis method with household common microwave oven. The morphology of cuprous oxide can be easily controlled by adjusting the amount of glucose added, via which the sphere, cube and octahedron cuprous oxide were synthesized. The phase, morphologies and optical properties of cuprous oxide were characterized by XRD, SEM and UV-vis. The photocatalytic efficiency are evaluated by monitoring the photocatalytic degradation of Methylene blue (MB) solution under visible light irradiation. The results show that the spherical, cubic and octahedral cuprous oxide exhibited the high degradation efficiency.
