During the last decade green synthesized cerium oxide nanoparticles (CeO2 NPs) attracted remarkable interest in various fields of science and technology. Cerium oxide nanoparticles have been used in a number of non-medical products over the years. Synthesis of cerium oxide (CeO2) nanoparticles was studied by new and simple co-precipitation method. The crystalline structure, surface morphology, phases, functional groups and size were examined by assorted characterization techniques like scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), Thermo gravimetric analysis (TGA) and fluorescence spectroscopy studied were investigated. Furthermore, the antibacterial properties of CeO2 nanoparticles were investigated by their bacterial activity against four bacterial strains using the agar well diffusion method.
