Languages of publication
The present communication reports the biosynthesis of zinc oxide nanoparticles using aqueous extracts of leaves, stem, root, flowers and fruits of Duranta erecta L. This plant gains horticultural and medicinal importance due to its various biological activities. Zinc Nitrate Hexahydrate [Zn (NO3)2•6H2O] solution was used as a precursor to synthesize Zinc oxide nanoparticles. The various plant (leaves, stem, roots, flowers, fruits) extracts played as reducing agents. The leaf extract showed strong absorbance peak at 302 nm, stem and flower peaks were located at 299 nm, roots at 293 nm and fruit extract solution peak observed at 317 nm.
