Zinc oxide (ZnO) is an inorganic compound which is insoluble in water. This is used as an additive in many materials. Due to its antibacterial activity ZnO used in many medical applications. ZnO nanoparticles can be synthesised using green method, and characterized. For the analysis of particle size and structure XRD is used. FTIR is used to analyse the functional group. The surface morphology of the material analysed using SEM. EDAX is used to analyse the elemental group present in the material. In antibacterial activity the zone of inhibition for different bacteria are measured.
