Development of green nanotechnology is generating interest of researchers toward eco-friendly biosynthesis of nanoparticles. In this study, biosynthesis of stable copper nanoparticles was done using aloe barbadensis leaf extract. First, we prepared leaf extract of aloe barbadensis in deionized water. This extract added to 1mMol of copper sulfate solution and we observed the change in color of the solution from colorless to colored solution. The present study tracing of an object is a green synthesis of copper nanoparticles by the interaction of leaf extract and copper salt. Biosynthesis of nanoparticle put forward a cost-free and environmentally suitable method of nanoparticle synthesis. Powder X-ray diffraction and SEM analysis showed that synthesized CuO nanoparticles with an average particle size of 60nm. Shape of copper nanoparticles was spherical and cubic and their range was 80-120nm. EDX of synthesized nanoparticles showed copper 38%. UV spectrophotometer confirms peak of the copper nanoparticle.
