Abstract

Copper oxide nanoparticles (CuONPs) were synthesized using Moringa oleifera leaf extract via a simple green chemistry approach. The prepared CuONPs were characterized using X-ray diffraction (XRD), field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM), energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), UV-visible diffuse reflectance spectroscopy (UV-DRS), and photoluminescence (PL) analysis. The CuONPs showed antifungal activity against Candida albicans, Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus clavatus, Trichophyton mentographytes, and Epidermophyton floccosum. The results revealed the successful synthesis of CuONPs by simple green chemistry approach may provide a useful tool in the field of nanotechnology.
