Abstract:

In the recent decades, nanotechnology has become an important research field of modern material science. Green synthesized nanoparticles have gathered wide interest in medical field due to its inherent features like rapidity, eco-friendly and cost-effectiveness. For the first time, Zinc Oxide nanoparticles were successfully synthesized using Pongamia Pinnata leaf extract in the present investigation. The optical senstivity of the Zinc Oxide nanoparticles was characterized by UV vis. The X- ray diffraction (XRD) studies showed the crystalline nature and revealed the purity of Zinc Oxide nanoparticles. The success-ability of bacteria and fungi with Synthesized ZnO nanoparticles tested using agar well diffusion method were discussed. The bacterial and fungal destruction was better for ZnO nanoparticles than reported for plant extracts and standard drugs. Thus, this study proves that Zinc Oxide nanoparticles would contain natural anti-microbial agents through green synthesis, which may produce drugs for antimicrobial therapeutics.
