Résumé : 

The aim of this work is to synthesize copper oxide on copper electrode electrochemically for use in the O2 electroreduction. The growth of CuO arrays on Cu foil was demonstrated. The morphology and structure of the CuO were examined by X-ray diffraction spectroscopy. The catalytic performance of the obtained CuO/Cu electrode for O2 electroreduction was evaluated by means of cyclic voltammetry, chronoamperometry.
