Green Synthesis of Zinc Oxide Nanoparticles Using Tropical Plants and Their Characterizations
- Green synthesis is one of the most popular methods in nanotechnologies. Different tropical plants have a characteristic feature of medicinal effects that are associated with metallic nanoparticles present in the plants. Nanoparticles are used immensely due to its small size, orientation, physical properties, which are reportedly shown to change the performance of any other material which is in contact with these tiny particles. These particles can be prepared easily by different chemical, physical, and biological approaches. The green synthesis was done by using the aqueous solution of Neem(Azadirachta indica) leaf extracts and zinc nitrate solution as well as aqueous solution of Golden shower (Cassia fistula) leaf extracts and zinc acetate solution. Moreover, the synthesized zinc oxide nanoparticles were characterized by using ultraviolet-visible (UV-Visible) spectroscopy, Fourier Transform Infrared spectroscopy (FT IR), Energy Dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF), X ray Diffraction (XRD), and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) analyses.
