She retired in 2017 and currently has an honorary position at the Open University. She has produced OU teaching texts in chemistry for courses at levels 1, 2, and 3 and written texts in astronomy at level 2 and physics at level 3. She was team leader for the production and presentation of an Open University level 2 chemistry module delivered entirely online. She is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry and a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. She was co-chair for the successful Departmental submission of an Athena Swan bronze award. Lesley E. Smart studied chemistry at Southampton University, United Kingdom. After completing a PhD in Raman spectroscopy, she moved to a lectureship at the (then) Royal University of Malta. After returning to the United Kingdom, she took an SRC Fellowship to Bristol University to work on X-ray crystallography. From 1977 to 2009, she worked at the Open University chemistry department as a lecturer, senior lecturer, and Molecular Science Programme director, and she held an honorary senior lectureship there until her death in 2016. At the Open University, she was involved in the production of undergraduate courses in inorganic and physical chemistry and health sciences. She served on the Council of the Royal Society of Chemistry and as the chair of their Benevolent Fund.

In Zinc Oxide: Production, Properties and Applications, the authors first provide a summary of the natural sources available for the synthesis of zinc oxide nanoparticles, enlisting some plant-mediated synthesized zinc oxide nanoparticles showing promising antimicrobial, antioxidant, cytotoxic and photocatalytic properties. Important technological opportunities and challenges emphasizing the electrical and optoelectronic features of elongated zinc oxide nanoparticle nanosystems are reviewed. The various nonlinear optical phenomenon observed in zinc oxide thin film, inlcuding nonlinear absorption, nonlinear refraction, nonlinear scattering and harmonic generations are introduced. Selected literature on the use of zinc oxide nanoparticles for the immobilization of enzymes is reviewed, as well as the use of zinc oxide nanoparticle/enzyme systems in the fabrication of biosensors. The authors explore transition metal doped zinc oxide nanoparticles for a wide range of catalytic organic reactions, further exploring their catalytic applications for organic transformations at mild reaction conditions. The basic concepts behind the development of nanostructured zinc oxide nanoparticles, including the solid state reaction, hydrothermal method, solvothermal method and co-precipitation method are discussed. Lastly, a facile, eco-friendly synthesis of zinc oxide nanoparticles using the peel extract of Musa paradisiaca L, Punica granatum L, and Citrus reticulata Blanco as bioreducing agent is reported.
