The dependence of the morphologies on the growth time and temperature was investigated in detail. An experiment was carried out to determine the mechanism of tubular ZnO formation. Our results showed that ZnO microtubes originated from an ageing process from ZnO microrods at a lower temperature (compared to the temperature when hydrothermal deposition of ZnO microrods was dominant) due to the preferential chemical dissolution of the metastable Zn-rich (0001) polar surfaces. A growth model was proposed based on the coexistence of hydrothermal deposition and dissolution of ZnO in the fabrication process.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/95560
