Nanotechnology brings the enormous application in the field of medicine, agriculture and aquaculture technologies, which is shifted from the chemical based solutions. The current work concerned on green synthesis of Magnesium Oxide nanoparticle from the extracts of pomegranate peels and cauliflower, in which the Magnesium Sulphate Heptahydrate has been act as a precursor. Because of its high hardness property of Magnesium Oxide,it is used as fire retardant in plastic tubes and chemical fibre. The various analytical studies and morphological characteristics were taken for MgO nanoparticles such as XRD, SEM, FTIR, EDS, UV-Vis and Antibacterial activity. From the XRD, the crystallinity of MgO particles was found out. From the FTIR and UV-Vis spectrum, the powdered composition of the samples and their optical properties were determined. SEM predicts the morphological structure of MgO nanoparticles and their elemental composition were determined in the EDS analysis. Antibacterial activity for MgO nanoparticles exhibited good results against gram positive and gram negative bacterial.
