Carbon materials derived from non-renewable and fossil fuels have been extensively utilized in various energy storage applications but the elimination and manufacture procedure are frequently harmful and polluted. Hence, to obtained carbon nanomaterials from renewable bio-mass materials is ecofriendly and communally important. Banana peel is one of the majority and easy to get bio-wastes, obviously developed graphene nanomaterials. In this work, we report a new synthetic method to produce graphene oxide (GO) were effectively investigated utilizing waste banana peel at low temperature. To know the structure and nature of the synthesized GOBP were characterized by XRD, SEM, TEM and FT-IR. The XRD originally proved the successful preparation of GOBP by this ecofriendly method which shows the peak at 2θ = 11.30 confirms the complete oxidized of waste banana peel into GO. Further, it was also proved by the FT-IR to determine various functional groups containing oxygen and the morphology were analyzed by SEM and TEM. The presence of various functional groups containing oxygen provides greater opportunities in many areas such as electronic and medicinal fields. The antibacterial activity of GO were performed against P. aeruginosa and E. Coli. From this report, we have concluded that the graphene based nanomaterials hold great promise for combating microbial infections and other applications in targeted drug delivery system, development, of biomedical device diagnostics and therapeutics.
