Abstract: Green synthesis of iron nanoparticles being cost effective and ecofriendly treatment technique, is gaining importance nowadays. The aim of the present study is to prepare leaf extracts, precursor, and synthesis of iron nanoparticles and to evaluate its efficacy in treating domestic waste water. Synthesis of iron nanoparticles is done using various leaf extracts viz. Mangifera indica, Murraya Koenigii, Azadiracta indica, Magnolia champaca, and to check its potential for treating domestic waste water. Characterization of the synthesized iron nanoparticles is done by UV Visible spectrophotometer, Scanning Electron Microscopy equipped with X-ray energy dispersive spectroscopy and Fourier Transform Infrared spectroscopy. The characterization results confirm the formation and presence of iron nanoparticles and biomolecules which could help in capping the nanoparticles. The effect of iron nanoparticles thus obtained is evaluated for simultaneous removal of total phosphates, ammonia nitrogen, and chemical oxygen demand. Among the different plant mediated synthesized iron nanoparticles, Azadiracta indica showed 98.08% of phosphate, 84.32% of ammonia nitrogen and 82.35% of chemical oxygen demand removal. Overall performance of Azadiracta indica synthesized iron nanoparticles showed satisfactory results compared to other leaf extracts for treating domestic waste water. 2016 Elsevier Ltd
