Cadmium sulphide nanoparticles (CdS) have a great role in chemical research, bio- technology and medicine. The present study mainly involves development of an efficient and environmental friendly method of synthesis of cadmium sulphide nanoparticles by chemical precipitation method using green materials. Annona muricata leaf extract was used as a capping/reducing agent for the preparation of CdS nanoparticles. TEM, XRD, SEM with EDS and UV-Vis spectroscopy were used to study the morphology, distribution, crystallinity and size of the particle. Biological activity was studied using the bacterial strain staphylococcus aureus and aspergillus niger.
