Abstract

To synthesise Copper oxide nanoparticles and study it's characterisation using UV -viz - Spectrophotometer and TEM.  Copper oxide nanoparticles are eco-friendly, cost-efficient and diverse utilisation all over the medical field. The shape of the CuO nanoparticles are spherical, and its characterisation is done using SEM, TEM, and UV-vis techniques. The size of the nanoparticles mediated in each plant extract differs from one another. MATERIALS AND METHODS  * Collection and Preparation of Plant extracts. * Synthesis Of CuONPs * Characterization of copper nanoparticles * preparation of nanoparticles powder. The plant extract is in green colour, and the CuO nanoparticles are seen in light yellowish in colour. Uv-VIS SPECTROMETER:  The particle size ranges from 2-100nm and shape is spherical. The graph reached its peak at the wavelength of 300nm. The TEM shows spherical shape, dispersion and versatile nanoparticles. They appear to be arranged in a cluster, open and quasi-linear superstructures. This research shows that CuO nanoparticles shows excellent biocompatibility. The particles which are smaller in size shows great immunity. Hence the nanoparticles are expected to be used in future for effective drug systems.
