Abstract

Znic oxide thin films consist of crystals with controllable nanorod or nanoscrew structures were successfully prepared on a glass substrate by a solution process at 95 °C. The zinc oxide thin film with superhydrophobicity and superhydrophilicity was successfully obtained by the treatment of 1 mM of Zn2+-hexamethylenetetramine mixed solution at 95°C for desired aging time. The effect of reaction time on the surface structure and physical-chemical properties of the ZnO thin film was investigated. Longer aging time prefer to the formation of developed surface structure of ZnO thin film. The ZnO thin film with nanoscrew structure showed high chemical luminescence intensity, implying its excellent chemical reactivity.
