Abstract

Various ZnO nanostructures are produced from counterflow diffusion flames, which include nano-wires, ribbons, rods, and networked structures. The synthesis is carried out at one atmosphere pressure on a Zn metal substrate. Several parameters affecting the process are investigated, and the growth mechanism of these nanostructures in the flame environment is discussed. Flame synthesis allows for growth of nanostructures of semiconducting metal oxides in a simple, economic, continuous, and readily-scalable manner.
