Using the mixture of zinc oxide and graphite powders as source materials, zinc oxide nanodisks with bulk quantity were fabricated by vapor-phase transport method. The nanodisks have perfect hexagonal shape with about 3 μm in diagonal and 300 nm in thickness. The growth is favored along six symmetric directions of ±, ±, and ± with the typical growth along  direction suppressed, which directly leads to the formation of zinc oxide nanodisk. The microstructure and growth mechanism are discussed.
