Main Article Content
Background: Synthesis of nanoparticles using plants like arrow roots in today’s era is considered an eco friendly technology as no toxins or chemicals are involved. Zinc is a natural element with various functions to maintain the structure and general function of macromolecules. It facilitates enzymes that help in regulating cellular process and cellular pathways. Zinc oxide nanoparticles prepared from Arrow root have numerous applications in biomedical industries.This synthesis of zinc oxide nanoparticles is carried out by a standard green synthesis procedure. Zinc nanoparticles have an effect on cell viability, antioxidant activity as already mentioned, destruction of environmental pollutants. It is also said to be a safe form of nanoparticle and as obtained by other studies, it acts as a natural human skin barrier. Maranta arundinacea ( family: Marantaceae) also known as arrowroot is a perennial plant with enormous medicinal properties .It is used to treat complications like diarrhoea, vomiting, indigestion and even urinary tract infections and also used as a baby food.
Aim: To observe the anti inflammatory activity of Maranta arundinacea mediated zinc oxide nanoparticles.
Materials and Methods: Preparation of zinc oxide nanoparticles using arrowroot and evaluation of anti-inflammatory activity.
Results: According to the graph obtained, arrowroot muted Zinc oxidants show significant antiinflammatory activity.
Conclusion: Since the anti inflammatory activity of Arrow root is significant, it can be used as a better drug of choice.
