Novel natural exudate as a stabilizing agent for fabrication of copper nanoparticles as a colourimetric sensor to detect trace pollutant

surfaces and interfaces (Volume: 32)

Detection of trace pollutants in water has become one of the most interesting issues due to its direct relation to human health. This work exploits a simple, novel, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly method to fabricate optical copper nanoparticles (Cu NPs) as an efficient colourimetric sensor using tree gum as a stabilising and capping agent. The localised surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) band of almond gum Cu NPs (ACuNPs) is monitored using ultraviolet-visible (UV-vis) spectroscopy. With an average size of 33 nm, the ACuNPs, which were uniformly spherical, are assessed using high resolution-transmission electron microscopy (HR-TEM). The formation of pure metallic-phase crystalline ACuNPs is illustrated using x-ray diffractometry. The Cu nanostructure determines the thiocyanate (SCN− ) ions in an aqueous medium as a colourimetric sensor. The ACuNPs demonstrated sensitive and selective colourimetric detection of SCN− ions based on the decrease in LSPR intensity, as monitored by a UV-vis spectrophotometer. The developed sensor is simple, rapid, and inexpensive compared to those based on precious noble metal nanoparticles and is sensitive to SCN− ions with a detection limit of 0.226 mg/l. This work presents the development of a highly effective and rapid sensor to detect SCN ions without complex apparatuses.

Sustainable engineering of plant-synthesized TiO2 nanocatalysts: Diagnosis, properties and their photocatalytic performance in removing of methylene blue dye from effluent. A review

Current Research in Green and Sustainable Chemistry (Volume: 5)

Water resources have been exposed to many kinds of pollutants in the last decades. These contaminants included inorganic and organic substances, such as heavy metals, plastics, herbicides, pesticides, antibiotics, and dyes. Because of the developing textile industry, pigments have been spread out over the environment extensively, especially in the aquatic system, which impacts the organisms' life. Further, it is considered as a longlife threat because of its resistancy to degradation by microorganisms. In this review many aspects have been illustrated related to synthesis, characterization, and mechanism degradation of Methylene blue dye of plant based titanium oxide nanoparticles and the variation of properties of synthesized nanoparticles using different parts of plant. The article also explains several techniques used for synthesis of titanium dioxide nanoparticles and their efficiency and drawbacks in details. Further, compare the conventional methods to the green based techniques and how the green approach is more advantageous and efficient. Besides, the spectroscopic and microscopic techniques used in characterization of green prepared titanium nanoparticles have been exhibited in details. Moreover, it viewed the proposed mechanism of photocatalytic degradation of organic pollutants in aqueous medium in assistance of visible and ultraviolet light to mineralize the organic pollutant to less toxic species. In this regard, an attempt was made to congregate the various reports on green synthesis of TiO2NPs using extract of various parts of the plant, their characterizations using different spectroscopic, microscopic techniques, and their efficient action in the removal of methylene blue (MB) dye from the effluent

Current Research in Green and Sustainable Chemistry (Issue: 4)

Copper nanoparticles have been obtained due to the green process in a one-pot reaction at ambient temperature using Malva Sylvesteris leaves extract. The plant extract has used as a reducing and capping agent, providing stability and avoiding oxidation of synthesized copper nanoparticles for more than eight months. Many techniques have exploited for the investigation of optical and physicochemical properties of copper nanoparticles. UV-VIS spectroscopy showed two bands at different locations for the extract and nanoparticles at 340 and 390 nm, respectively. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy confirmed the role of bioactive materials in the plant extract as a reducing and capping agent. X-ray diffraction tool affirmed the crystalline nature of fabricated copper nanoparticles at average (20 nm) and showed a centred cubic structure. Field emission scanning electron microscope (FESEM) chart illustrated the roughly spherical shape of distributed copper nanoparticles. The copper nanoparticles showed high-efficiency removal of methylene blue dye in water samples.

The Efficient Removal of Methylene Blue Dye Using CuO/PET Nanocomposite in Aqueous Solutions

catalysts (Issue: 11) (Volume: 241)

The present research investigates the application of the green method to produce nanocomposites. The CuO/PET fiber nanocomposite can be prepared in two ways. The first way involves the application of the electrospinning technique by which waste plastic cups of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) are converted into nanofibers. In the second way, the copper nanoparticle (CuONPs) is synthesized with the natural capped plant extract of sumac (Rhus Coriaria L., family Anacardiaceae) and the CuONPs are then combined as a filler with the PET nanofiber using a cross‐linked solvent. The X‐ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM), energy dispersion spectroscopy (EDS), and map elements distribution can be applied to investigate the surface modification and alteration of the composite nanofiber morphology. The collected data show that the produced CuO/PET nanocomposites have a high surface area, well distribution of elements, magnificent shape, and stable dispersion state. Furthermore, the CuO/PET nanocomposites are considered as an efficient photocatalytic removal of the toxic methylene blue dye (MB) in aqueous solutions. The results of the present study demonstrate that the photocatalytic efficiency for removing MB dye is achieved in a short time using a low‐intensity irradiation ultraviolet light

Sustainable chemistry and pharmacy (Issue: 100155) (Volume: 13)

Multi-component reactions (MCRs) are some of the most significant processes of highly functionalised organic compound synthesis in modern synthetic chemistry. This is a strong artifice for the rapid preparation of diverse heterocyclic scaffolds. This study involves two steps: first, fabricating copper nanoparticles as active catalysts using Trifolium resupinatum leaf extract as a reducing and capping agent and, second, utilising the active catalyst to synthesise 1,3,4-thiadiazole in a one-pot, three-component reaction via reacting with thiocarbohydrazide, acetophenone, and chalcone to produce 1,3,4-thiadiazole derivative compounds at an ambient temperature. Copper nanoparticles and T. resupinatum leaf extract have been characterised by ultraviolet–visible spectroscopy (UV-VIS), Fourier transform infrared (FTIR), X-ray diffraction (XRD), field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM), energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS), transmission electron microscopy (TEM) spectrum, and pH analysis. The synthesised thiadiazole compounds have been identified by physical and spectral methods. The melting point, FTIR, UV-VIS, and 1H, 13C NMR spectra were employed to verify the heterocyclic fivemembered fused ring structure.
