Abstract

This experiment involves the growth of ZnO nanorods with NaOH by the HMT-assisted hydrothermal method and discusses the efficiency of NaOH is helpful to the growth of ZnO nanorods. The analyses of the synthesized ZnO nanorods by XRD, SEM, EDS and TEM reveal a single crystal structure with good crystallinity where the nanorod growth is along the [001] direction. In addition, it is discovered experimentally that the aspect ratio of the product is increased with the addition of NaOH, which verifies that the basic environment is beneficial to the growth of ZnO nanorods.
