Aims: Synthesizing ZnO NPs using Petroselinum crispum extract, commonly known as parsley, as a source of
biosynthesis without utilizing chemical agents for reducing, capping and stabilizing agent.
Background: Recently, the biosynthesis of nanoparticles has been widely explored due to the wide range of vital applications
in nanotechnology. Biosynthesized zinc oxide nanoparticles, ZnO NPs, has become increasingly important since it has many
applications and environmentally friendly.
Methods: The innovation of this investigation is the nanosized ZnO NPs can be formed from one-pot reaction without utilizing
any external stabilizing and reducing agent which is not plausible via the current procedures.
Results: The biosynthesized ZnO NPs were characterized using UV-Vis spectroscopy, FT-IR spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction
(XRD), Field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM), Energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX) to investigate
the optical, chemical, structural, and morphological properties.
Conclusion: These techniques exhibited that the property of the biosynthesized ZnO NPs is analogous with the standard NPs
prepared from dissimilar methods. Investigating the plausible mechanism of formation and stabilization of ZnO NPs by
biomolecules of Petroselinum crispum leaf extract was another vital feature of this study.
