In this paper, pure Zinc Oxide (ZnO) nanoparticles (NPs) and Tin (Sn) doped ZnO nanostructures (NSs) prepared by using Co-precipitation approach are reported. The hexagonal wurtzite structure of pure ZnO and Sn (0.05% & 0.075%) doped ZnO NSs were analyzed by powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD) technique and the presence of various functional groups were identified by Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) analysis. The optical energy gap was estimated by Tauc’s plot under UV-Vis absorbance spectra. The shape and surface morphology of pure ZnO and diamond like structured Sn (0.075%) doped ZnO NSs are analysed by using FESEM and HR-TEM analysis. Sn (0.075%) doped ZnO NSs shows higher catalytic properties for the degradation of MB dye molecules under UV light, which provides promising application for detecting and eliminating organic pollutant.
