Role of Crotalaria verrucosa L. extracts in synthesis of Zinc oxide nanoparticles

Title variants
Languages of publication
Green synthesis of metal (zinc) oxide nanoparticles is a fascinating subject in the field of nanobiotechnology. Nanoparticles using green plants are suitable for large scale biosynthesis at room temperature with affordable price and eco-friendly nature. The stable nanoparticles were synthesized using leaves, stem, roots, flowers, immature and mature seeds extracts of Crotalaria verrucosa. Zinc Nitrate hexahydrate [Zn(NO3)2•6H2O] was used as precursor material in this experiment. The formation of nanoparticles was monitored by visual color changes and UV-Visible spectrophotometric analysis. UV-Visible absorption peaks between 299-317 nm confirmed the presence of ZnO at nano-scale. The present technique confirmed that this plant species could be explored in the field of nanotechnology for human welfare.
