In this research, Zn2 SnO4 nanorods were prepared and structural properties of the nanorods were characterized, developing of wide-range of the optical behavior of Zn2 SnO4 nanorods and the antibacterial activity was also investigated using a microwave-assisted method. A zinc stannate (Zn2 SnO4 ) nanorod was synthesized via facile microwave-assisted method using ammonia with cubic spinel structure. The crystallography and optical properties were studied using X-ray diffraction and photoluminescence spectroscopy. The morphology of the nanoparticles was observed using field emission scanning electron microscopy. The antibacterial effect of Zn2 SnO4 nanoparticles tested against Gram-positive and Gramnegative pathogenic bacteria was investigated. The Zn2 SnO4 nanorods showed the excellent antibacterial activity, the inhibition zone indicates the biocidal action of Zn2 SnO4 nanorods. Here, we concluded that these materials were used as a bactericidal agent to prevent and control the spread and persistence of infectious diseases.
