This work is to investigate the phytoconstituents and the presence of zinc nano particles in Cinnamomum tamala. The plant sample was collected and the zinc nano particles were isolated and characterized by spectrum analysis such as UV-Visible Spectroscopy and Fourier Transform Infra Red Spectroscopy. This study shows that the environmentally benign and renewable leaf extract of Cinnamomum tamala can be used as an effective stabilizing as well as reducing agent for the synthesis of zinc oxide nanoparticles. The presence of alkaloids and terpenoids, flavonoids, tannins, phenolic compounds are present in the Cinnamomum tamala. Our findings could be targeted for the promising potential applications such as bio sensing devices and nano electronic devices because of its pollution free and eco-friendly approach. We concluded that Cinnamomum tamala has effective antibacterial activity and it is effectively docked with receptor. This study could be very helpful in the pharmaceutical applications in future.
