Paper Title:
Growth of Highly Orientated and Well-Aligned ZnO Nanowhiskers Using Aqueous Solutions
  Abstract

Length-tailored, monodisperse, highly orientated, single-crystalline hexagonal and aligned ZnO nanowhiskers were grown onto F-doped SnO2 conductive glass (FTO) substrate at 88 °C using an aqueous solution. The aqueous solution for growth of ZnO nanowhiskers included zinc nitrate hexahydrate, hexamethylenetetramine and polyethylenimine. The addition of branched polyethylenimine, which may be adsorbed on the nonpolar surface of ZnO crystals, improved the growth of ZnO nanowhiskers along the c-axis.
