Title: Rapid and eco-friendly synthesis of copper nanoparticles

Copper nanoparticles were synthesized successfully through chemical reduction method stabilized by PVA along with different stabilizers namely, Kondagogu (Cochlospermum gossypium), Maida Flour and Starch. The resulting copper nanoparticles were characterized by X-Ray Diffraction (XRD), Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) Spectroscopy and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) experiments to study the size and shape of the particles and functional group of the stabilizing agent. The particle sizes were confirmed by Small Angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS) experiment and are found to be around 6.5 nm.
