Cupric oxide nanoparticles of ∼810 nm width and 4045 nm length self assembled as large particles ∼11.5 μm have been investigated, in the 10325 K temperature range, using magnetic and dielectric measurements. In magnetic measurements a single broad peak at ∼230 K in a zero field cooled sample has been observed. Coercivity, in magnetization measurements at 10 K, suggests that the nanoparticles are core-shell type particles with an antiferromagnetic core and a ferromagnetic shell. Dielectric measurements, at various frequencies from 3.7 Hz to 949 kHz, exhibit a sharp peak at 284 K followed by weak anomalies around 213 and 230 K.
