Now, enticing systematic civic since everywhere the world is used in green synthesis and benefit of the simple is eco-friendly with an emergent method of producing nanoparticles (NPs). The aim of a single slope single basin solar still (SBSS) have been synthesized using Silicon dioxide (SiO2) nanoparticles (NPs)/leaf extract of Jatropha curcas L. (JCL) and the productivity enhancement to an evaluation for the photocatalytic treatment of the system. The synthesized of SiO2 NPs/JCL have been

The SiO2 NPs/JGL was established to explain in anatase then phase phytochemicals the synthesis of leaf extracts, the NPs involved in stabilization, and was applied for the first time to testify its potential in the SBSS process. An effect of SBSS is 82.26% during the treatment with synthesizing SiO2 NPs/JCL successfully active for the solar still process. The SBSS has been produced the total summer distillate yield of 8.79 L/day (SiO2 NPs /JCL), winter is 6.49, L/day (SiO2 NPs) to over all of the system at 24 h cycle in the local climatic condition at Vijayawada, Andhra Pradesh, India. The yield of the SBSS is enhanced due to the increased absorption of solar radiation by the SiO2 NPs/JCL, and the thermal energy is absorbed by utilization during nighttime for distillation. This is due to the convection of absorbed thermal energy to the saline water and established in a clean-green treatment solution.
