Journal Title:Journal of Chemical, Biological and physical sciences

Zinc oxide nanoparticles have fascinated meticulous research interest because of its significant applications in the field of medicine, pigment electronics, spintronics and piezoelectricity. The biogenic invention of zinc oxide nanoparticle is a better option due to ecofriendliness. Aqueous leaf extract of Acalypha indica were used to synthesis zinc oxide nanoparticles not only in the laboratory scale, but also in their natural environs. This green synthesis approach shows that the environmentally benign and renewable aqueous leaf extract of Acalypha indica can be used as a stabilizing agent for the synthesis of zinc oxide nanoparticles. The fashioned nanoparticles ranged in dimension of about 100-200nm. Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM), Energy Dispersive X-Ray analysis (EDX), X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) and Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FT-IR) entrenched that the formed nanoparticles are zinc oxide nano cubes.
