The synthesis of metallic zinc nanowires were performed by evaporating ZnO powder mixture with graphite in an NH3 flowing carrying gas environment. The morphology, structure and chemical composition of the deposited products were analyzed by using SEM and TEM. It was found that the zinc nanowires possessed serpentine geometries with lengths upto a few micrometers and diameters 20 to 200 nanometers.
