Synthesis of uniform ZnO nanorods via wet chemistry approach Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • ZnO nanords were synthesized using spherical ZnO nanoparticle precursor solution. Our unique wet chemistry approach can produce uniform ZnO nanorods at a much lower concentration than expected. We used transmission electron microscopy to characterize the rod-like shape evolution of ZnO quantum dots. The underlying mechanisms for the formation of ZnO nanorods are described and discussed.
