The aqueous leaves extract of Conocarpus erectus L. was used to create the manganese nanoparticles, or MnONPs. When the leaf extract (5% w/v) is combined with MnCl2 (1M), the MnONPs become visible after a few hours with a color shift. Atomic force microscopy (AFM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform infrared (FTIR), and UV-S were used to analyze MnONPs. The manganese nanoparticle size, as determined by XRD, was approximately 9 nm, while the aggregate size ranged between 14 and 67 nm, depending on SEM, when employing UV-S. The use of FTIR technology revealed the existence of phenol and other chemical active sites. All of these measurements were made using MnONPs and plant extract separately for comparison.
