This article presents a new method of synchronization of unified chaotic system by employing output feedback control strategy. In particular, for unified chaotic system with parameter α∈ [0,1], we design explicit and simple output feedback control scheme by which the equilibrium point of error system is globally stabilized. The numerical simulation of unified chaotic system has been demonstrated to show the effectiveness of the proposed synchronization scheme.
