Paper Title:
Aligned Growth of Zinc Oxide Nanorods on Catalyst-Seeded Si Substrate by Aqueous-Solution Immersion Method
  Abstract

We report an optimisation of reaction conditions leading to successful growth of aligned ZnO nanorods by a simple aqueous immersion method. Si substrates were immersed in aqueous Zn2+ solution at various temperatures ranging between 50 - 90°C and at various immersion times. Degree of crystallisation, thermal decomposition, surface morphology and crystallite size were analysed by FT-IR, TGA, SEM and XRD. Seeded noble metals like gold, platinum and nickel on Si substrate were found to improve the vertical alignment of rods’ growth and reduce the diameter of ZnO nanorods.
