A facile hydrothermal method using simple complex as the precursor has been used for the controllable synthesis of Cu2O microcrystals in the comprehensive chemistry experiment. In this experimental class, reaction conditions are altered to prepare Cu2O microcrystals with various morphologies. The structure, morphology and optical properties of Cu2O microcrystals are characterized, and the photocatalytic properties are compared.

Key words: Hydrothermal method, Cu2O, Comprehensive experiment
