We investigate chaos control nodes of the complex network synchronization. The structure of the coupling functions between the connected nodes is obtained based on the chaos control method and Lyapunov stability theory. Moreover a complex network with nodes of the new unified Loren-Chen-Lü system, Coullet system, Chee-Lee system, and the New system is taken as an example; numerical simulations are used to verify the effectiveness of the method.
