Zinc Oxide (ZnO) nanoparticles are investigated for use in various biomedical applications such as in the treatment of cancer because of their high targeting potential. In this work, nano-conjugation between zinc oxide nanoflowers (ZnO NFs) and multi-walled carbon nanotubes has been successfully achieved. Here, we have used a two-electrode electrochemical setup for preparation as well as conjugation between ZnO nanoflowers and MWNT. The electrochemical method used here is a single step, economical, and without the use of any additional surfactant or capping agents. The only use of pure zinc electrodes as a precursor material favors high purity, easy and a less time-consuming purification process.
