Python | Create a dictionary using list with none values

Sometimes you might need to convert a list to dict object for some better and fast operation. Let’s see how to convert a list into a dictionary of none values. Here we will find three methods of doing this.

Method #1: Using zip()and dict

# Python code to demonstrate
# converting list into dictionary with none values
# using zip() and dictionary
  
# initializing list
ini_list = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]
  
# printing intialized list
print ("initial list", str(ini_list))
  
# Converting list into dictionary using zip() and dictionary
res = dict(zip(ini_list, [None]*len(ini_list)))
  
# printing final result
print ("final dictionary", str(res))

Output:

initial list [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]
final dictionary {1: None, 2: None, 3: None, 4: None, 5: None}
