The extracted material from Moringa oleifera is used for synthesis of the ZnO nanoparticles. The extracted material from plants is used as stabilizing and reducing agent. Plant extracts are also used for the formation of nanoparticles this is called green synthesis method which decreases the formation of unsafe materials. With the help of various Analytical techniques for example scanning electron microscopy (SEM), Infrared (IR) Spectroscopy and UV (Ultra violet) Spectroscopy, the manufactured ZnO nanoparticles are distinguished. The range of the size of ZnO nanoparticles is from 48nm by SEM and XRD. The peak of ZnO is observed at 500 cm-1 by FTIR. Ultraviolet visible spectroscopy shows the spectrum of ZnO at 290-315nm range. Moringa oleifera mediated ZnO revealed high activity against gram positive and gram negative bacteria. Smaller sized Nanoparticles shows excellent antimicrobial activity.
