The exploitation of various biomaterials for the biosynthesis of nanoparticles is considered as green technology as it does not involve any harmful chemicals The present study reports the synthesis of copper nanoparticles which involves non pathogenic bacterial strain Pseudomonas stutzeri, isolated from soil These copper nanoparticles are further characterized for size and shape distributions by ultraviolet-visible spectros copy x ray diffraction and high resolution transmission electron microscopy techniques The results showed that the particles are spherical and quite stable in nature and shows surface plasmon resonance clearly featured in the optical spectra in visible region.
