  • Abstract

    NiO nanoparticles stabilized with starch was synthesized and characterized using UV-Vis, FT-IR, FESEM and XRD techniques. From FESEM analysis the morphology of the prepared NiO nanoparticles was found to be flower shaped. XRD analysis showed that the NiO nanoparticles corresponds to phase pure cubic crystals and from scherer formula the particle size was calculated to be 9 ±0.5 nm. Using optical absorption spectra, tha band gap energy was obtained. Photocatalytic activity of the synthesized nanoparticles was investigated by carrying out the degradation studies of norfloxacin under UV light irradiation
