ZnO-CdO composite was prepared with hydrothermal method. The structural, morphological, optical, and electrical properties of the nanocomposite have been carried out using X-ray diffraction (XRD), FTIR, scanning electron microscopy (SEM), UV-VIS-NIR spectrophotometer, and two probe, respectively. TG-DTA analysis was done to determine the thermal stability. The compositional analysis was done by EDX. The band gap of the composite were found to be 2.84, 2.78 and 3.06 eV respectively with increasing the content of Zn precursor.
