Abstract We have studied the structural and optical properties of ZnO/CdS nanocomposite and its application on nanoantibacterial activities. In this paper, we have used X-ray diffraction, Transmission electron microscope (TEM) and Energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX) techniques in order to know about the structural and optical properties of synthesized ZnO/CdS nanocomposite. After TEM and EDX analysis it has been confirmed that the shape of this nanocomposite is hexagonal and it has no impurity. The optical absorption spectra of pure ZnO and ZnO/CdS nanocomposite have been presented by UV-Visible Spectrometer and the estimated band gap from absorption peak has been found to be 3.36 and 3.74 eV respectively. Antibacterial activity of ZnO/CdS nanocomposite was evaluated by using standard zone of inhibition (ZOI) microbiology assay. The synthesized ZnO/CdS showed promising antibacterial activity against Staphylococcus aureus in dose dependent manner.
