Vanithakumari, SC and Nanda, KK and Krupanidhi, SB (2009) Synthesis of One-Dimensional ZnO Nanostructures from Zn Powder/Granule. In: Journal Of Nanoscience And Nanotechnology, 9 (3). pp. 2061-2065.Full text not available from this repository.
We report the growth of one-dimensional ZnO nanostructures with different morphologies such as nanoneedles, nanorods, nanobelts from Zn powder/granule. The growth process is different from the conventional vapor-solid mechanism. The advantage of this method is that neither a catalyst nor any gas flow is required for the synthesis of nanostructures. Depending upon the Zn powder or Zn granules as the starting material different nanostructures have been synthesized which demonstrates the versatility of the technique.
