The Compton profile (CP) of polycrystalline CuO has been measured using 60 keV gamma -rays. In the absence of rigorous theoretical results the obtained data have been analysed in terms of CPS calculated within the framework of the renormalized-free-atom model, employing several wavefunctions for the 0 2p state. Compared with 3d102p5, the CP for the 3d92p6 configuration was found to be in better agreement with the experimental data. As in MgO, here also Watson's+1 well solution of the 0 2p state was found to provide better results than the rest. However, the best results were obtained with a configuration given by 3d9.42p5.6. The implications of this are discussed.
