Abstract
The purpose of this review is to summarize published data regarding synthesis and antimicrobial behaviour of zinc oxide nano particles. Zinc oxide is low cost, nontoxic, exhibit outstanding optical, physical, photocatalytic and antimicrobial properties. Anti microbial behaviour depends on shape and size of nano particles. Toxicity of zinc oxide nano particles toward both gram positive and gram negative bacteria make them a potential antimicrobial agent. Due to this, zinc oxide nano particles are well accepted in the field of cosmetics, medicine, textile, food packaging etc. This paper reviews method of synthesis and application of synthesized material as anti microbial agent. Zinc oxide nano particles are very much effective against Campylobacter jejuni, A. baumannii, S. aureus , S. Typhimurium , methicillin resistant S. aureus , Salmonella typhi and many more.They inhibit the growth of microorganisms by causing oxidative stress and by permeating into the cell membrane.
