Green Synthesis Approach, Organic polymers, Semiconductors, X-ray diffraction


In this study, ZnO was produced using a green synthesis approach and deposited on a glass substrate using a drop-casting method. The structural and optical properties have been studied. X-ray diffraction (XRD) shows that the ZnO film is crystalline, with an average size of 21 nm. ZnO NPs have an energy gap of 4.7 eV. The sample's behavior, as shown in the figures, indicates that ZnO has good qualities and can be used in many Bioapplications.
