In this paper, CuO nanoparticles  have been synthesized via solid- state thermal decomposition using copper(II) Schiff base complexes as new precursors at 600ºC under air atmosphere for 3 h. Surface morphology of the products were characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM).
