Due to their electric, optical, photonic, catalytic, and antimicrobial properties, copper oxide nanoparticles (CuO NPs) have received a great deal of attention. using plants Crocus Sativus.  A green, non-toxic, and economical method of creating nanostructured materials is through biosynthesis. So, the purpose of this work is to present an updated overview of the primary green synthesis process of CuO NPs utilizing Crocus extract, as well as studies on its characterization and antibacterial activity. A UV-Visible (UV-Vis) spectrophotometer that detected surface Plasmon resonance at 308 nm was used to study the reaction's kinetics. Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus epidermoid are two human pathogens that the CuO NPs exhibit antibacterial efficacy against, with average zones of inhibition of 20 mm and 17 mm, respectively. In order to acquire considerably active antibacterial material, the current study demonstrates a practical application of Crocus Sativus extract was used as a reducing agent in the effective green synthesis of CuO NPs.
