Languages of publication
The enormous applications of metal nanoparticles urged to find new biologically hazard free methods for huge synthesis. The green synthesis approaches are acknowledged by many scientists due to its cost effective, simple, eco-friendly and resourceful move. The present investigation deals with the bio-production and characterization of zinc oxide (ZnO) nanoparticles using leaf, stem, flowers and fruit pods of the medicinal plant Moringa oleifera. The synthesis of ZnO nanoparticles from the aqueous extracts were mediated by Zinc Nitate Hexahydrate as precursor. Various parameters like time periods, concentration of plant extracts and different temperatures were influenced the synthesis of ZnO nanoparticles. The stability and reduction of zinc ions to ZnO nanoparticles were characterized by UV-Visible spectroscopic analysis. The reaction medium from the leaves and flowers showed strong absorption at 308nm. The stem and fruit pods reaction medium existed absorption peak at 293nm.
