Abstract : Copper oxide nanoparticles (CuONPs) have been successfully synthesized from copper acetate monohydrate and carob leaf extract in one pot reaction at 80o C. The biosynthesized copper oxide nanoparticles were characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and UV-vis spectroscopy. The particles are crystalline in nature with average size of 8.0 nm. The morphology of the copper oxide nanoparticles can be controlled by tuning the amount of carob leaf extract and copper ions. This facile and green approach may provide a useful tool to large scale synthesis other nanoparticles that have potential biotechnology.
