Zinc oxide doughnut-shaped particles were synthesized using a chemical route. A possible growth model has been proposed from a detailed experiment in which samples were picked from the reaction chamber at various time intervals and characterized using scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Particles were also characterized using X-ray diffraction (XRD) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS).
