The popularity of copper nanoparticles synthesis and its widespread application, it is in considerable attention. The increasing environmental apprehension towards the synthesis of chemical products opens up a route for the green synthesis. Among them, the synthesis from plant extracts surpassing the microbial culture is often found to be more preferable than any other biological means. The present study deals with the investigating the synthesis of copper nanoparticles by using Catharanthus roseus and Azadirachta indica-two medicinal plant leaves extracts, alongside its antibacterial and antioxidant activities. The formation of copper nanoparticles was confirmed by the pH, spectrophotometric and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy analysis. The inhibitory action of these nanoparticles were well executed in Escherchia coli, Streptococcus aureus and Proteus vulgaris. The antioxidant activities were also provided positive response from these plant leaves extract which suggests the influence of its active principles that can involve in making the nanoparticles more efficient over the chemically synthesized drugs.
