Ordered homogeneous arrays of copper (II) oxide nanotubes have been fabricated through an MOCVD template route using Cu(tmhd)2 (Htmhd=2,2,6,6-tetramethyl-3,5-heptandione) as a source. Alumina anodic oxide membranes have been used as a template. The X-ray diffraction pattern shows the formation of the CuO monoclinic phase. The morphology of the prepared nanotubes has been probed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). SEM images of the CuO nanotubes after removing the template indicate the formation of well ordered nanotube arrays. There is evidence that nanotubes are opened on both sides.
