The use of biomaterials are considered a green method for the preparation of nanoparticles because it does not involve any hazardous chemical, simple reaction condition, easy isolation of nanoparticles therefore it is an alternative to physical, and chemicalmethods. In this paper,we report the synthesis of Cu nanoparticles using Coriander Leaf Extract. For synthesis ofCu nanoparticles copper sulfate was used as starting material and its reduction was carried by Coriander Leaf Extract from Cu2+ to Cu0 The synthesized Cu nanoparticles characterized byUV-Visible, FTIR and XRDmethods. From XRD analysis size of Cu nanoparticles was found to be 13nm
