Zinc oxide nanoparticles (ZnO-NPs) were synthesized for the first time from any of the species of Ceropegia. Presently, ZnO-NPs were synthesized from the leaf extract of Ceropegia candelabrum with zinc nitrate using a simple hydrothermal process. The synthesized ZnO-NPs showed an absorption peak at 320nm which is one of the characteristic features of ZnO-NPs. The FT-IR characterization revealed a spectrum band at 551.93cm-1 corresponding to the functional group metal oxide. SEM images showed… Expand
