ZnO nanoparticles have been successfully synthesized by a chemical precipitation method using non-ionic surfactants such as PVP in aqueous medium. The particles were prepared in air atmosphere at 80°C. X-ray Diffraction (XRD), Scanning electron microscope (SEM), Fourier transform infrared spectrometer (FT-IR), UV-visible and photoluminescence (PL) studies were used to investigate the effect of capping agent on the size, morphology and optical properties of the ZnO nanoparticles.
