ZnO nanostructures can be derived using a variety of techniques. Hydrothermal synthesis of ZnO nanostructures can be produced easily on a large scale at low temperature. Among the factors that influence the crystallinity of ZnO nanostructures are types of alkaline solution, the alkaline pH value used and the duration of the hydrothermal process. This research focuses on the fabricated of ZnO nanostructures via hydrothermal synthesis and the effects of alkaline solution on the morphology of ZnO nanostructures. Distilled water was mixed with three types of alkaline which are NaOH, KOH and LiOH solutions in three different pH values. The hydrothermal process was conducted using three different time which are 6, 12 and 24 hours. XRD analysis was carried out to identify the phase and crystallinity of ZnO nanostructures. Morphology and surface roughness analysis were characterized using FESEM and AFM to observe the nanostructures growth on ZnO thin films. All of these analyses were performed on the growth of ZnO nanostructures after the hydrothermal process.
