Abstract [en]

Zinc stannate (ZnSnO3) nanostructured were synthesized in aqueous media at room temperature. The room temperature synthesis was designed using pourbaix diagrams. The synthesized nanoparticles were checked for their photocatalytic activity for inactivation of model microbe such as Escherichia coli (E.Coli). Photocatalytic activity was observed for zinc stannate (ZTO) in colloidal solution and ZTO deposited on glass slides. Various different concentrations of ZTO nanoparticles were used in slurry form, the bactericidal activity was observed under halogen light, room light and dark conditions. Type of light source and concentration of catalyst were observed to be the two utmost parameters for assessing the efficiency.
