Abstract Hydroxyl free zinc oxide nanorods have been synthesized by a catalystfree surfactant based one-step solid state reaction process. The powder X-raydiffraction studies reveal well defined wurtzite peaks due to crystalline ZnO, whileoptical absorption spectra represent prominent exciton absorption and remarkableblueshift in the onset of absorption. As predicted by transmission electronmicroscopy, the ZnO nanorods are ~100 nm long and of ~20 nm dia. Further,luminescence aspects of such nanorods are studied for possible deployment inoptoelectronics devices.
