In this work, a simple and green eco-friendly chemical free biosynthesis of Magnetite nanoparticles using polpala flower extract as reducing agent. The prepared magnetite nanoparticles were characterized by UV-Vis absorbance spectroscopy, FT-IR spectroscopy, XRD and SEM measurements. The formation of magnetite nanoparticles was observed by the change of colour from colourless to dark brown by the addition of flower extract. The average particle diameter is determined by SEM was found to be with an average diameter of 38 nm by co-precipitation method. X-ray diffraction demonstrated that the nanoparticles are crystalline in nature. These Fe3O4 nanoparticles prepared through biosynthesis method, are promising candidate in various applications like biomedical and utilizing as recyclable magnetic nano-catalyst for organic reactions.
