Abstract: In this work, zinc oxide nanoparticles have been synthesized by cost-effective and based on the efficient cetrimide and varying solvents are using the method of co-precipitation annealing at 350 C. The resultant powder samples were characterized well by means of XRD, SEM, FT-IR, PL and UV-visible DRS spectroscopy. Among them, XRD exhibits ZnO has the structure of hexagonal wurtzite with a preferred orientation of 101 planes. It is noted in ZnO represented in SEM images have different solvents and cetrimide has a strong influence on the morphology of ZnO nanostructures that are to be sized are 50nm, 70nm, 90nm 100nm. It confirms that the changes in the band-gap from UV-vis DRS data. The presence of Zn-O confirms various functional groups decomposed in the sample from FTIR data. The PL study states that the emission band available at approximately 410nm and checks the recombination level shows low, further, it correlates with good photocatalytic properties. The sunlight measured by Lux meter and dye degradation studies is done by a simple aeration photocatalytic technique represents 95% degradations and under UV light is 85%. Besides, the scavengers of the responsive species of during the degradation were additionally examined for photocatalytic mechanism. An antibacterial activity is enhanced significantly, which is based on the attribution of Nano features of ZnO nanostructures for p. aeruginosa bacteria. Thus, this study paved the way for potential applications of photocatalytic and antibacterial activities. Keyword: ZnO; scavengers; Photocatalyst; Antibacterial activity.
