Paper Abstract

This paper presents the influence of reaction time for the thickness and particle density of ZnO layer. Paper-like ZnOCellulose hybrid nanocomposite was fabricated using a low temperature hydrothermal synthesis in the aqueous solution. This ZnO nanostructure on the cellulose as thin ZnO layer, utilized substrate via simple reaction including the alkaline hydrolysis, was composed by hydrothermal synthesis. It is revealed that growth mechanism of ZnO nano-rod of the ZnO-Cellulose hybrid nanocomposite is governed as the crystal orientation limited by structural and morphological analysis. As the reaction time of chemical process increases, the size of the ZnO nanostructure also increases. These composite materials can be used to smart materials for flexible electronic or electro-mechanical devices such as transistors and strain sensors.
