    Aim: This study aims to synthesize and study the free radical scavenging activity of plant-mediated zinc oxide nanoparticles (ZnO NPs). Introduction: ZnO NPs have received much attention recently as it has many properties such as its extensive antimicrobial activity, eco-friendliness, and simplicity. ZnO especially has special attention due to its excellent antibacterial nature. In addition to these properties, ZnO NPs were also found to be less toxic in in vitro test. ZnO NPs characterization is done ultraviolet-visible techniques. ZnO NPs exhibited high antioxidant activity against DPPH free radicals scavenger. Materials and Methods: Collection and preparation of plant extracts, synthesis of ZnO NPs, characterization of ZnO NPs, and preparation of NPs powder were used. Results: The plant extract is in dark green color and the ZnO NPs are seen in light yellowish in color. The graph reached its peak at a wavelength of 380 nm. Conclusion: This research shows that ZnO NPs show excellent biocompatibility and less toxicity. Hence, the NPs are expected to be utilized in the future in various industries for wide purposes.
