The importance of plant is well known. Life and its growth cannot be imagined without plants. They not only produce food for survival but also create healthy environment and eco-friendly atmosphere to live. Jatropha gossypiifolia
(L.). Several species J
with anticancer effects, anti-
inflammatory and antimicrobial activity has been found to be chemo preventive. The leaf decoction of this plant is used for bathing wounds, sores, sprains, rash and bewitchment. In the recent research work, the present investigation the leaves of J. gossypiifolia
were chemically screened for antibacterial activity by extracting them successively in various solvents such as Petroleum ether (PE). Crude extract of leaves was screened for the presence of chemically active compounds by standard methods and for antibacterial activity by zone of inhibition (mm). In my present field, a new innovative idea is discovered by promoting the synthesis of nickel particle and by phytochemical screening from the aqueous leaf extract of this plant species. The results revealed the presence of Alkaloids (AL), Saponin (SA), Tannin (TA), Flavonoid (FL), Terpenoids (TT). A new drug is to be identified and made by this leaf extract for curing diseases by carrying out the experimental analysis from the field of Nano Science and Technology. Additionally, it can be identify trace elements in the materials by XRD (X-
Ray Diffraction), SEM (Scanning electron microscope), FTIR (Fourier-transform infrared) spectroscopy and UV-
Visible (Ultra violet-
Visible) spectroscopy and EDAX (Energy Dispersive X-Ray Analysis).
