In this study, copper oxide (CuO) nanostructures were successfully prepared by adding EG (ethylene glycol) and PEG (4000, 8000) (polyethylene glycol) via an in-situ chemical precipitation method. EG and PEG (4000, 8000) were effective for changing the particular size of CuO and we examined the effects of drying type such as freeze drying, muffle and horizontal furnace on the size of CuO nanostructure. The structure, morphology and elemental analysis of CuO nanostructure were analyzed by field-emission scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS). Also, the CuO nanostructures showed excellent electrical conductivity by the changing of PEG’s molecular weight and drying processes. © 2018 Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.
