Abstract [en]

ZnO nanosheets are found to be useful in many fields such as sensors and electronics. Non-uniform- shaped ZnO nanosheets are synthesised using several methods; moreover, uniformly shaped ones are less studied. Here, we report on a simple one-step method to synthesise parallelogram-shaped single- crystalline ZnO nanosheets. By controlling the reaction of Zn(NO3 )2 and hexamethylenetetramine (HMT) in ethanol, average 30 nm-thick nanosheets with a high aspect ratio of 1:100 were obtained. The par- allelogram angles were between 97◦ and 99◦. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) diffraction and X-ray diffraction (XRD) showed that the nanosheets were wurtzite-structured single-crystalline ZnO. Moreover, a growth mechanism of these parallelogram nanosheets is suggested based on the experi- mental results. These results suggest a new simple solution process to synthesise uniformly shaped ZnO nanosheets allowing large-scale production to be employed.
