Potential of Biogenic Plant-Mediated Copper and Copper Oxide Nanostructured Nanoparticles and Their Utility

  • Ravindra Pratap Singh
Part of the Nanotechnology in the Life Sciences book series (NALIS)


Copper and copper oxide nanoparticles (Cu NPs) were synthesized using plant resource extract as reducing, stabilizing, capping, chelating, and protecting agent. They have been utilized intensively due to their immense applications in variety of fields including nanomedicine, bioelectronics, and optics; used in conductive films, lubrification, nanofluids, photocatalyst; and used as antimicrobial agent. Nanobiotechnology plays an important role in modern research and can be applied to almost all fields, namely, electronics, chemical industry, space, energy, mechanics, cosmetics, environment, agriculture, healthcare, food, biomedical science, pharmaceutical, drug, cancer or tumor therapy, and gene delivery. The NPs are synthesized via chemical, physical, and biological methods. The biological method, i.e., green synthesis, is one of the best methods for the production of NPs with several advantages over other methods like cost-effective, simple, room temperature, and nontoxic. The nanobiogenic syntheses of copper and copper oxide nanostructured nanoparticles are green and eco-friendly technology which neither use hazardous chemicals nor high temperatures. This chapter discusses the synthesis of copper and copper oxide nanostructured nanoparticles by plant resources and their potential utilities.
