Zirconia nano particles were synthesized from Zirconium oxychloride octahydrate using the extract of Zingiber officinale by Green synthesis. The synthesis was confirmed by the color change from pale yellow to pink. The synthesized nano particles were characterized by UV-visible spectrophotometer, Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FT-IR), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), X-ray Diffraction (XRD). The nanoparticles were found to be tetragonal with the XRD results. As an application in Dentistry, the activity of the zirconia nanoparticles were checked using well diffusion method with an oral bacterium, Streptococci mutans, and found the nano particles were inhibiting the growth of the bacterium.
