Green Synthesis of CuO Nanoparticles using Ziziphus Mauritiana L. Extract and Its Characterizations

Authors(5) :-Shreyas Pansambal, Sonali Gavande, Suresh Ghotekar, Rajeshwari Oza, Keshav Deshmukh

Copper oxide nanoparticles (CuONPs) synthesized by a completely environmentally safe and facile process using Ziziphus mauritiana L. aqueous plant extract as an effective stabilizing agent. Phytochemical screening of the fresh aqueous leaves extract showed the presence of coumarins, tannins, saponins, flavonoids, and glycosides. The synthesized CuO nanomaterial was characterized by XRD, SEM, EDX, TEM and surface area. This green synthesis route indicates that, it is efficient method than chemical method.
