An extract of Aloe Vera acts as a powerful reducing agent for the synthesis of ultrasmall copper nanoparticles (CuNPs) in water medium. The prepared copper nanoparticles are characterized by XRD, HRTEM and UV-Vis analysis. The diameter of the prepared nanoparticle is less than 5 nm. The catalytic activity of CuNPs has been successfully evaluated for the three-component reaction to synthesize 1,2,3-triazoles and chalcone tethered 1,2,3-triazoles with low catalyst loading and under mild reaction conditions. These triazoles are further utilized for the synthesis of dihydropyrazines.
