Co-deposition of two types of high aspect ratio nanostructured ZnO involving nanowires and nanotetrapods with a uniform structure were carried out through thermal evaporation and vapor transportation of a mixture of highly pure ZnO and graphite powders in 1:1 weight ratio. The mixture was heated at 1100 oC under various flow rates of N2 and air mixture. The surface morphology and structural characteristics of synthesized ZnO nanostructured materials revealed a highly crystalline structure with
