Presently the progress of green chemistry in the synthesis of nanoparticles with the use of plants has engrossed a great attention. This study reports the exploit of aqueous leaf extract of Corriandrum sativum as an eco-friendly agent for the pattern of Zinc Oxide nanoparticle using zinc acetate and sodium hydroxide as a surrogate for Chemical method. The present exploration describes the synthesis and characterization of ZnO nanoparticles prepared by green and chemical technique (XRD, SEM, FTIR and EDAX). ZnO nanoparticles have found fabulous application in biomolecular detection, diagnostics, micro electronics and water remediation. Though chemical and green methods are trendier for nanoparticles synthesis, the biogenic green fabrication is a better choice due to eco-friendliness.
