  This paper reports about green synthesis of nanoparticles. For the Green synthesis of nanoparticles extracts of Cucumis fruit and Mangifera indica leaves have been used. These extracts are chosen due to their antioxidant properties. Nanoparticles of Copper (Cu) and Nickel (Ni) are prepared by using above mentioned plant extracts. The nanoparticles are characterized using TEM, IR and UV-visible techniques. The TEM images of Copper nanoparticles describe that different shapes of Cu nanoparticle are obtained. Shape and yield can be controlled by manipulating temperature and pH conditions.
