Present study focuses on the green synthesis of ZnO nanoparticles by zinc nitrate and utilizing the bio components of leaves extract of Calotropis Gigantea. The ZnO nano crystallites of average size range of 30-35 nm have been synthesized by rapid, simple and ecofriendly method. Zinc nanoparticles were characterized using scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD). The particles obtained are spherical in nature and are agglomerates of nanocrystallite. The X ray patterns show hexagonal crystal type for ZnO. The results coincide with literature XRD pattern for hexagonal wurtzite ZnO. The size of nano crystallites is calculated by considering XRD data by Debye-Scherrer’s Formula.

Keywords: Zinc nanoparticles, Calotropis gigantea, Green-synthesis. X Ray Diffraction, Scanning Electron Microscopy
