ZnO nanostructures with different morphologies were synthesized by condensing the Zn(OH)42- precursors under hydrothermal conditions in the presence of a surfactant, cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB). Shape and size control of ZnO nanostructures was achieved by relatively simple variations of molar ratio of CTAB to Zn(OH)42-. With a higher molar ratio, ZnO nanotubes were obtained, whereas with a lower molar ratio, ZnO nanorods were formed; furthermore, with a moderate w value, the coexistence of ZnO nanorods and nanotubes was also observed. The photoluminescence of ZnO nanorods and nanotubes was also investigated.
