Abstract: There is a great interest in the development of green protocols to avoid environmental and health hazards. In this research, the eco-friendly and cost-effective synthesis of gold nanoparticles (GNPs) has been achieved by the green method using ethanolic turmeric crude extract at pH 7. The bioac-tive compounds of turmeric crude extract are responsible for the reduction, capping and sta-bility of the GNPs. The characterization of GNPs was carried out by ultraviolet-visible (UV-vis) spectroscopy, Fourier transforms infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy, field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM) and energy dispersive X-ray (EDX) spectroscopy. The UV-vis spectral study indicated the formation of GNPs with a surface plasmon resonance (SPR) band at 547 nm. FTIR analysis of turmeric crude extract and GNPs showed that phenolic groups reduced the gold ions. The FESEM analysis showed the polydisperse morphology of GNPs with average size of 26.6 nm±7.4 nm. The elemental composition determined by EDX re-vealed the presence of gold. The synthesized GNPs can be useful in a variety of applications involving medicine, cosmetics, environment and nutraceutical.
