Zinc oxide nanorods were fabricated with Zinc Chloride, ZnC12 as precursor with presence of Poly (vinylpyrrolidone), PVP as capping agents by a simple wet chemical synthesis method. The zinc oxide nanorods were being characterized by using Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM), Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM), UV-Vis absorption spectroscopy and Energy Dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX). The influence of experimental conditions, reaction temperature, pH of medium and grow time on the morphology of zinc oxide nanorods were investigated. The SEM and TEM micrographs showed that both diameter and length of zinc oxide nanorods were decreased with elevated temperature. Well-defined individual zinc oxide nanorods with uniform diameter and length were formed at neutral pH (7-8) solution. It was also found that the diameter of zinc oxide nanorods were increased with increasing growth time. In contrast, the length of zinc oxide nanorods were decreased when the increasing growth duration.
