In this day and age, nanoparticles have become one of the essential needs of society in

various sectors such as development. Another applications have the potential to be

used with ZnO, therefore the development can improve the quality of nanoparticles to

make them more specific. Synthesis procedures should avoid the use of harmful

chemicals to ensure that the environment is maintained. The green biosynthesis

method is a simple procedure where the plants used are easy to find and where the

methods used are safe. In this paper, a brief overview of the Zinc Oxide Nanoparticle

(ZnO) method is used to identify the shape, size and characteristics found in plant

extract such as coriander, brinjal and banana peel. The unresponsive effect of

temperature on ZnO during the experiment can change the size, shape and

characteristics. To determine the characteristics of the ZnO synthesis from plant

extract, machines such as XRD, FESEM and UV-Vis were used in this experiment.
