Mn substituted ZnO nanoparticles(NPs) with compositional formula where x=0.00, 0.01. 0.03 and 0.05 were synthesized by sol-gel method and characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD) which revealed the formation of single phase structure of all samples which is followed by UV-VIS technique. The lattice parameters 'a=b' and 'c' and Crystallite sizes were determined from XRD, it is found that they changes with the increase of Mn concentration, which suggests that doped Mn ions goes to Zn sites. The optical properties were studied by using UV-VIS technique and it is observed that the absorption edge varies with doped Mn content.
