Free Radical Scavenging Activity of Copper Nanoparticles Synthesized from Dried Ginger
Journal of Pharmaceutical Research International,
Nano science is considered to be an important area in research in which developing nontoxic, reliable and ecofriendly synthesis of nanoparticles by the green approach has a vital part. Nanoparticles that contain antimicrobial and antioxidant properties are considered to be a new trend for developing therapeutic agents that help in killing drug resistant pathogenic microorganisms. The present study is focused on discovering the antioxidant properties of copper nanoparticles synthesized from dried ginger. Dried ginger is a traditional medicine used widely and has shown to possess good antioxidant and antimicrobial properties. The phytochemical compounds of dried ginger can act as a reducing agent to synthesize copper nanoparticles. Copper nanoparticles were preferred for this study as it has unique physical and chemical properties. There are various methods used to synthesize nanoparticles and here in this study we have used the green synthesis method for synthesizing the copper nanoparticles. The copper nanoparticles were characterized by UV-vis spectroscopy and its antioxidant property was evaluated by DPPH assay.
