We report on the growth of novel ZnO nanostructures using thermal evaporation and thermal decomposition methods. Thermal evaporation is used to produce ZnO/carbon nanotubes heterostructures, while ZnO nanocrystals were produced by thermal decomposition of zinc alginate gels. The nanostructures were characterized by a variety of techniques including x-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, Raman scattering, and photoluminescence spectroscopy. Semi-empirical molecular orbital calculations gave information on the nature of the binding between ZnO and carbon nanotubes.
