Green chemistry is an alternative route of which has overcome the limitations of other chemical methods. Nanocrystalline zinc oxide (NC-ZnO) with different structures have been grown on quartz plates by spin coating method by the use of plant extracts of Citrus aurantifolia which can be a cost effective and eco-friendly approach.. The present exploration describes the synthesis and characterization of ZnO nanoparticles thin films were characterized by XRD, SEM and AFM and Raman techniques to reveal their structural, morphological and optical details.
