The Fe2O3 and CuO oxides were synthesized by a new reaction of methyl urea with FeCl3.6H2O, Fe(NO3)3.9H2O, Fe2(SO4)3 and Cu(OAc)2, respectively, in an aqueous media at ~ 90 °C. The infrared spectra and microanalysis, CHN, of the solid products resulted indicate that the absence of the bands of methyl urea, but appearing the characteristic bands of oxides. A general mechanism describing the formation of oxides and decomposition of methyl urea are suggested.
