The Use of single-molecule precursors (also known as single-source precursors =SSP) for preparation of nano-crystallites is very interesting as it contains desired element in same molecule. The synthetic method adopted can change the shape, phase, purity and morphology of the materials. The controlled properties of materials make them suitable for the technological applications. Nano-dimensions of the materials give rise to new interesting properties due to size Confinement. Metal oxides have great importance due to their applications as catalysis and battery cathode. Curcumin is used as traditional Ayurvedic medicine. It is yellow coloured powder and have β-di-keto moiety which is considered as powerful chelating agent.
