Abstract
The present study reports the feasibility of watermelon rind aqueous extract to fabricate ZnO nanoparticles.
The aqueous extract of watermelon rind was prepared and characterized using HPLC technique. Citrulline
an essential amino acid present in watermelon rind was found to act as capping agent for fabrication of ZnO
nanoparticles. The TEM analysis revealed that, the shapes of produced ZnO nanoparticles were found to be
anisotropic with few nano rods. The prepared ZnO nanoparticles were used as nanosorbent for removal of
toxic metal ions such as Pb2+ and Cd2+ ions from aqueous solution and further as antimicrobial agent
against pathogens. The results suggest that watermelon rind can be a potential precursor for fabrication of
ZnO nanoparticles with versatile applications.

Key words: Watermelon rind; Nanoparticles; Biomimetic; Adsorption; Antimicrobial
