Growth of zinc oxide nanorods in alocohol solution Conference Paper uri icon


  • Zinc oxide (ZnO) nanorods have been grown by hydrolyzing Zn(OAc)22H2O in methanol solution. Nanoparticles in sizes ranging from 2 to 4 nm were first obtained at low concentration. The growth kinetics was monitored by UV-vis absorption spectroscopy. The precursor was then concentrated by 10 folds and refluxed at 60C for 24 hours to form ZnO nanorods with an aspect ratio of 12. Ligand adsorption growth model was proposed to explain the anisotropic growth.
