Abstract: Synthesis of nanostructured ZnO by an environmentally-friendly method thus applying water as the major media is the aim in solution-immersion method. In this paper, the effect of three types of seeded template to the structural and optical properties of ZnO nanostructures grown by the Solution-Immersion method is investigated. The primary template is glass, seeded with three types of thin films i.e. TiO2 by radio-frequency (RF) magnetron sputtering at 200 W (ZnO/TiO2), a layer of PMMA by spin-coating (ZnO/PMMA) and ZnO grown by the mist-atomization method (ZnO/ZnO). The morphology and optical properties will be investigated by FESEM, PL and UV-Vis.
