A facile hydrothermal synthesis with CuSO4 as the copper source was used to prepare micro-nano-Cu2O. The obtained samples have been characterized by X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy SEM, and transmission electron microscopy TEM. With increasing the reaction temperature and time, the final products were successively Cu2O octahedron microcrystals, Cu2O-Cu composite particles, and a wide range of Cu spherical particles. The gas sensitivity of products towards ethanol and acetone gases was studied. The results showed that sensors prepared with Cu2O-Cu composites synthesized at 65°C for 15 min exhibited optimal gas sensitivity. The gas sensing mechanism and the effect of Cu in the enhanced gas response were also elaborated. The excellent gas sensitivity indicates that Cu2O-Cu composites have potential application as gas sensors.
