Abstract

ZnO and Mg doped ZnO nanoparticles (NPs) were synthesized by green method using Psidium guajava leaf extract. X-ray power diffraction studies confirmed that, synthesized nanoparticles were retained the wurtzite hexagonal structure. In addition, the crystallite development in nanostructured ZnO and Mg doped ZnO NPs by X-ray peak broadening analysis. The individual contributions of small crystallite sizes and lattice strain to the peak broadening in pure and Mg doped ZnO NPs were studied using Williamson-Hall (W-H) analysis.
