Authors(3) :-Ujwala S. Tayade, Amulrao U. Borse, Jyotsna S. Meshram

Herein we study the Butea monosperma for the preparation of nickel nanoparticles. The plant extraction carried out in aqueous medium and screening for exact phytochemicals present in it. The nickel nanoparticles were prepared in one step in simple, cheap and less time consuming manner. The nickel nanoparticles are important for their semiconductor properties. We, therefore, study its optical properties by using tauc plot method. This also proves that confirmation of nanoparticles synthesized. The increase in band gap value indicates that decrease in particle size i.e. nanoparticle synthesis. The plant extract is useful in various fields such as medicines, dyes, and pesticides. Here the report of plant extracts as a reducing agent in nanoparticle synthesis. The nanoparticles synthesis were confirmed by various characterizations techniques such as Ultra violet -Visible spectrometer (UV), Fourier transform-Infrared spectrometer (FT-IR), X-ray diffraction (XRD), Scanning electron microscope (SEM) and calculating its band gap value which is 3.85 eV.
