Abstract:

The green synthesis of nanoparticles is an eco-friendly approach which is inexpensive and non-hazardous. Numerous plant extracts are used in the synthesis of nanoparticles from neem leaf, lemongrass, aloe vera, moringa leaves, etc. The present study was aimed at the bio-synthesis and characterization of Titanium dioxide nanoparticles (TiO2) using Azadirachta indica leaf (neem leaf) extract. Characterization was carried out using Zetasizer, X-Ray Diffraction (XRD), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM). The average size of nanoparticles measured by Zetasizer was 56.13 nm. XRD confirmed the anatase crystalline structure of synthesized Titanium dioxide nanoparticles. SEM analysis showed that the morphology of synthesized nanoparticles was spherical and results of AFM indicated that the nanoparticles are smooth. The study inferred that Titanium dioxide nanoparticles could be synthesized using neem leaf extract which provides a novel replacement for chemical synthesis.
