In recent years, ionic liquids (ILs), as green and designer solvents, have accelerated research in analytical chemistry. This green synthesis of gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) has emerged as an important area in nanotechnology primarily due to its eco-friendly approach. In this project, AuNPs were synthesized using palm oil leaf extract. Palm oil leaf, which is considered as the major waste in palm oil industry are chosen since it possess anti-oxidant properties. It serves as a reducing agent and stabilizing agent during the synthesis process, palm oil leaf extract simultaneously, hence, no additional reagent such as surfactant, template, and capping agent are needed. Green synthesizing method is rapid, cost effective, nontoxic and eco-friendly and these features are making it more compatible for biomedical application. The characteristics of the synthesized AuNPs were analyzed using UV-Visible Spectrophotometer that confirms the presence of AuNPs.
