Three dimensional ZnO dahlia-flowers have been engineered at room temperature relying on natural oxidation based aqueous chemical synthetic approach. Glycine abetted multicomponent isotropic morphology has been synthesized through the conglomeration of thin nanopetals as building blocks with highly large surface area to volume ratio. Highly controllable morphology of thin nanopetals is achieved by stabilizing their polar faces through the adsorption of reactive hydroxyl and amide functions of glycine. Fourier transform infrared conclusions also exemplify good corroboration towards the use of organic additives. Moreover, the synthesized ZnO flowers have been utilized to fabricate cholesterol biosensor and biosensing measurements which have been performed over the cholesterol concentration range of 1 x 10(-6) M to 1 x 10(-3) M.
