ZnO nanoparticles and nanorods have been successfully synthesized by hydrothermal method. In the hydrothermal method, Cetyltrimethyl ammonium bromide (CTAB) surfactant plays an important role in morphological changes. The nanostructures have been characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), Energy Dispersive X-ray Analysis (EDX), and Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM). Effect of pH on morphology and photoluminescence properties is discussed.
