This work describes the synthesis of terpolymers of aniline, diphenylamine, and o-anthranilic acid (PANIDPAA) by 1 : 1 : 1 molar ratio of the respective monomers doped by different concentration of copper ions via in situ chemical terpolymerization. The results are justified by measuring spectral characteristics namely, UV-vis absorption spectra, FTIR, and TGA. Calcining these PANIDPAA terpolymers doped by copper at temperatures in the range of 700°C led to the formation of CuO nanoparticles in the nanoscale by thermal decomposition in air directly. The stages of decompositions and the calcination temperature of the precursors have been determined from thermal analysis data sheet. The obtained CuO nanoparticles have been characterized by X-ray diffraction and transmission electron microscope (TEM). TEM showed a particle size less than 40 nm. © 2014 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J.
