Main Article Content
The aim of this research work is to report novel ligand capped copper nanoparticles and their catalytic and antimicrobial activity. In the present investigation, CuNP-L1 and CuNP-L2 were produced by reducing copper sulphate with ligands viz, ascorbic acid and 4-hydroxybenzaldoxime in aqueous medium without inert gas insulation at low temperature (80°C) respectively. The ligand capped copper nanopartices were characterized by UV-Visible and FT-IR spectroscopy, Powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD) and Scanning electron microscopy-energy dispersive spectroscopy (SEM-EDX). From major diffraction peaks, the average particle size was determined using Debye-Scherrer equation. The catalytic activity of capped copper nanoparticles in the reduction of 4-nitrophenol to 4-aminophenol was investigated and compared. Antimicrobial activity of present copper nanoparticles was studied against the pathogens viz. Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, and Candida albicans.
