Template-free hydrothermal synthesis of hexagonal ZnO micro-cups and micro-rings assembled by nanoparticles

Author affiliations

Abstract

The hexagonal ZnO micro-cups and micro-rings assembled by nanoparticles have been successfully synthesized via a template-free hydrothermal synthetic method, using only one reactant Zn(CH3COO)2·2H2O, which not only serves as the zinc source, but also provides an effective etchant CH3COOH that plays a strategic role in the formation of these ZnO hollow structures.
