There is an increasing commercial demand for nanoparticles due to their wide applicability in various areas such as electronics, catalysis, chemistry, energy, and medicine. Metallic nanoparticles are traditionally synthesized by wet chemical techniques, where the chemicals used are quite often toxic and flammable. In this work, describing a cost effective and environment friendly technique for green synthesis of Copper nanoparticles from 10mM CuSO4 and CuCl2 solutions through the extract of Argemone Mexicana leaf extract as reducing agent as well as capping agent. The present study was to examine the characterization studies of copper nano materials which prepared using green synthesis method. Nanoparticles were characterized using UV–Vis absorption spectroscopy, FTIR and XRD. The most important outcome of this work will be the development of value added products from Argemone Mexicana (a potential weed of India) for biomedical and nanotechnology based industries.
