Single-crystalline ZnO nanostructures were synthesized by solvothermal method using methanol as solvent. The effect of counterions of zinc salts (nitrate, acetate, and chloride) on the morphology of ZnO nanostructures was investigated. ZnO nanorods (NRs) were formed for all kinds of zinc salts except zinc chloride, where nanoparticles (NPs) were formed. The… CONTINUE READING
