In recent years, copper oxide has attracted increasingly interests for both fundamental and practical reasons. Until now, many different methods such as co-precipitation, sol-gel processing, micro-emulsions, hydrothermal synthesis, solution evaporation method etc. have been developed for the preparation of copper oxide (CuO) nanostructures. In this work, the simplest and cost effective technique solution evaporation was used to synthesize the copper oxide (CuO) nano-powder. The crystallite size of copper oxide (CuO) nanoparticles can be controlled by annealing temperature and pH. In order to study the effect on crystallite size annealing temperature increases from (400-600°C) while pH increases from (8-12). The structural and surface morphology of CuO nano powder was characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and Scanning electron microscope (SEM). XRD analysis revealed that the CuO nanoparticles had monoclinic structure and average crystallite size increases with increasing annealing temperature and pH. SEM micrograph shows spherical and rounded particles with increasing annealing temperature and flower like structure appear with increasing pH..
