In this paper a 2(8-4) fractional factorial design of experiments is applied to identify the important parameters that affect the average diameter of ZnO rods, synthesized by means of a hydrothermal procedure. A water-based Zn(2+) precursor is used for the formation of one-dimensional ZnO particles, without the presence of an organic additive. Results… CONTINUE READING
