Abstract

Metal oxide nanofibers have potential catalytic and sensing applications. In the present work, copper oxide nanofibers were synthesized using the electrospinning technique. The precursor, which is based on copper acetate salt and poly(vinyl alcohol) polymer dissolved in water, was electrospun under different flow rates. The produced nanofibers went through further processing to remove the PVA polymer through heat treatment. The obtained nanofibers were up to several microns long with diameter ranging from 50 to 100 nm as determined from SEM imaging. The compositional analysis carried out via Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS) revealed that the nanowires are composed of nearly 75 wt. % Cu and 25 wt. % O which is in stoichiometric agreement with that of pure copper oxide. The morphology of the nano fibers was also examined using Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) which revealed nanoscale irregularities across the fiber's length.
