Nanoparticle powders of zinc stannate indate spinel ( ) were prepared with a single step process. First nano-oxides of ZnO and were obtained by microwave-assisted combustion of aqueous solution of metal nitrates (as the oxidizer) and glycine (as fuel). This method is rapid, effective, cheap and convenient. In this paper, different combinations of fuel to oxidant ratio was used to prepare nanoparticle and its effect on structural, morphologica and optical characteristics were investigated using powder x-ray diffractometer, scanning electron microscope, Fourier transform infrared spectra meter and UV–Vis absorbance spectroscopy respectively. The structural parameters were calculated from PXRD pattern which confirmed the spinel structure of . The SEM investigations evidenced the presence of homogeneous distribution of spherical nanoparticles.
