Abstract:The synthesis of semiconductor nanoparticles is an expanding research area due to the potential applications in the development of nanotechnologies. The CdO nanoparticles have been synthesized by adding a leaf extract of Acalyphaindica into the aqueous solution of cadmium nitrate. The aqueous Acalyphaindica leaf extract acts as a solvent with multiple roles as promoter, capping agent and reductantfor the synthesis of undopedCdO andZrion doped CdO nanoparticles. Cadmium oxide nanoparticles were characterized by using UV-Visible spectrophotometer, FTIR, AFM, XRD and SEM. The size of the CdO nanoparticles and Zr ion doped CdO nanoparticles were estimated using Debye- Scherrer equation. Photo catalytic degradation was also investigated with Crystal violet dye under UV-irradiation source. The CdO and Zr ion doepdCdO nanoparticles exhibited potential photo catalytic activity towards the degradation of Crystal violet dye. Green synthesis using Acalyphaindicawas found to be the best capping agent for synthesizing nanoparticles. .

Keywords: CdO, nanoparticles, Green synthesis,Acalyphaindica , XRD, SEM, Photo catalytic activity.
