Abstract

In the present work, Fe3O4 (NR)/ZrO2 core/shell nanocomposites (CSNCs) were synthesized using a green approach. The Argemone mexicana L. leaf extract acts as both a reducing and capping agent in the synthesized Fe3O4 (NR)/ZrO2 CSNCs. Phase purity of Fe3O4 (NR)/ZrO2 CSNCs is shown by powder X-ray diffraction. Bio-constituents in the leaf extract and synthesized Fe3O4 (NR)/ZrO2 CSNCs were observed by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy analysis. The optical properties of the synthesized Fe3O4 (NR)/ZrO2 CSNCs were analysed. The potential stability of the Fe3O4 (NR)/ZrO2 CSNC material was estimated by Zeta potential analysis. The field emission scanning electron microscopy analysis exhibits ZrO2 seed materials coating onto the surface of Fe3O4 (NR) core material. The BET analysis reveals that the porosity of the material. Photocatalytic degradation of methylene blue, methylene orange and methylene green molecules under UV light using synthesized Fe3O4 (NR)/ZrO2 CSNCs provides promising application for detecting and eliminating organic pollutants from industrial waste water.
