Nanotechnology is significantly influencing Science and Economy in the 21stcentury. The use of nanoparticles in the field of nutrition is keeping pace and innovating with the ever expanding horizon of Nanobiotechnology. Flower is an important part of plant which contains a great variety of natural antioxidants, such as phenolic acids, flavonoids, anthocyanin and many other phenolic compounds. High intake of edible flowers has been reported to be associated with a lower incidence of chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease and cancer. These health benefits are attributed to the antioxidant capacity derived from the phenolic compounds present in edible flowers. Cocos nucifera species is widely cultivated and use for different purposes, such as, nutritional, medicinal, ritual and agricultural. The present study reports the biosynthesis of nanoparticles using the flower extract of Cocos nucifera and characterized. This is the novel approach of nanoparticles produced by using the flower extract. The nanoparticles formed was confirmed by colour changes from yellow to dark brown colour and UV-visible Nanodrop spectroscopy & FTIR studies were carried out to assess the formation of nanoparticles.
