In this present study, Iron Oxide nano particles were synthesized by using Green method. For this synthesis on Iron oxide, the leaf extract of piper betle was used as a reducing agent and FeCl3 as a precursor. Thus, they were characterized by XRD, SEM,EDX and FTIR. The parity of Fe2O3 nano particles was confirmed by EDX. The crystalline size of Iron Oxide nano particles was analyzed using X-ray Diffraction (XRD) spectrum. The functional groups are identified in Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR). The surface morphology of the Iron Oxide Nano particles is found from Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM). The optical properties are determined by using UV-Visible Spectroscopy. Thus, the so-formed nano particles were Fe2O3.
