This work reports on the synthesis and the main physical and chemical properties of ZnO nanoparticles synthesized by an entirely green Bio-physical-chemical process using natural dye extract from Adansonia digitata leaves as an efficient reduction/oxidizing agent. Their structural and surfaces properties by electron microscopy, X-rays diffraction, Raman and TGA, as well as gas adsorption analysis are reported.
