Green synthesis of copper nanoparticals from the flowers of Pandanus tectorius
Sarah Suganthi Lilian R, Priya R Iyer
The flower sample (Pandanus Tectorius) was extracted using Cold and Soxhlet extraction and those extracts were used to find out the Qualitative and Quantitative analysis. For qualitative and quantitative analysis of Pandanus tectorius was done with 11 tests to find out the presence Alkaloids, terpenoids, glycosides, amino acids, flavonoids, tannins, saponins, steroids, proteins, carbohydrates, phenols in both the samples. Then Synthesis of copper nanoparticles of the extracts of Pandanus tectorius was done. The copper nanoparticles were given for UV-spectrophotometer, FTIR, SEM and XRD for characterization studies. By using the nanoparticles various applications were studied.
