Abstract

ROOTS EXTRACT MEDIATED GREEN SYNTHESIS OF COPPER NANO PARTICLES USING ACORUS CALAMUS AND ITS CHARACTERIZATION

C. Sivakumar*, Dr. A. Pandia Rajan and Dr. G. N. Kousalya

ABSTRACT

Current work describes the synthesis of copper nanoparticles using Acorus Calamus Roots extract as a capping agent. The preparation of copper nanoparticles by using Acorus Calamus extract has desired quality with low cost and convenient methods. The Acorus Calamus extract was mixed with copper salt solution by heating to a temperature of 50-60˚C and the reduction reaction was studied by observing the color change. The resulting copper nanoparticles were characterized by UV Visible Absorption Spectrometer, Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR), The FTIR spectrum analysis has confirmed the presence of functional groups of stabilizer Acorus Calamus in capping the copper nanoparticles. Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) experiments. SEM and TEM results display the formation of copper nanoparticles with an average size of 50-100 nm. Copper nanoparticles exhibit an absorption peak at around 450 nm.

Keywords: Nanotechnology, Nanoparticles, Green Synthesis, Acorus Calamus Roots.
