Nanoscale zinc oxide (ZnO) rods of diameters close to the Bohr-exciton radius ( approximately 2 nm) can be prepared from a simple acetate precursor, resulting in ligand-capped rods of ZnO, highly dispersible in nonpolar solvents. Zinc oxide, ZnO, is a wide band-gap semiconductor with applications in blue/ultraviolet (UV) optoelectronic devices and piezoelectric devices. We observe self-assembly into uniform stacks of nanorods aligned parallel to each other with respect to the long axis, and… CONTINUE READING
