In the present work, pure zinc oxide (ZnO) nanoparticles (NPs) and flakes like structured Bismuth (Bi) doped ZnO nanostructures (NSs) were prepared by simple co-precipitation approach. Purity of the prepared material and the presence of various functional groups in the synthesized materials are confirmed by powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD) and Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) analysis. The structure and morphology of Bi (0.02%, 0.04% & 0.06%) doped ZnO NSs were determined by using Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscopy (FESEM) and the presence of elemental composition in the synthesized samples were identified by Energy Dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDAX) analysis. The photo-catalytic activity of Bi (0.02%, 0.04% and 0.06%) doped ZnO NSs was studied for methylene blue dye degradation..
