Title : Green synthesis, characterization of different Ag NPs, ZnO NPs, CuO NPs and Ferrite NPs using different vegetative and fruits extract for comparative power production in electrochemical cell
Now a days, one of the most important aspects for the development of green synthesis of nanomaterials is to synthesize the nanoparticles through ecofriendly approach using plant extracts as the reducing agents as well as capping agents. Among the metal and metal oxide nanoparticles (NPs) Ag NPs, ZnO NPs, CuO NPs and Ferrite NPs are a promising one due to their tremendous electrical properties and their vast applications in nanotechnology. In this report, we account a comparative study of green synthesis of Ag NPs, ZnO NPs, CuO NPs and Ferrite NPs by using the environmentally benign plant extracts of Bryophillum Pinnatum, Azadirachta indica, Moringa Oleifera and Tomato. The biosynthesized Ag NPs, ZnO NPs, CuO NPs and Ferrite NPs were characterized by the X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier Transform infra-red (FTIR), UV-visible spectroscopy (UV), Field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM), and Energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDX). Results conclude that using the various bio reducing agents during the synthesis process effects on the particle sizes of Ag NPs, ZnO NPs, CuO NPs and Ferrite NPs. This study elucidates an eco-friendly synthesis technique of nanoparticles using natural products which can take the frontier forward for the integration of green synthesis of metal and metal oxide NPs and development for the prolong applications of electricity production using electrochemical cell on nanotechnology. Some electrical parameters like internal resistance, voltage regulation, energy efficiency, voltaic efficiency, Columbic efficiency, Pulse performance, Self discharge characteristics, Discharge characteristics with load, Power density, Specific power density, Energy density, Specific energy density have been studied as a comparison between with NPs and without NPs.
