    • Abstract


      In this paper, cotton fibres were used as bio-template to successfully synthesize new ceramic materials, ZnO hollow fibres and in an effort to explore the synthesis condition, and simplify the synthesis procedure. In this synthesis, a direct thermal decomposition of zinc acetate dihydrate coated on the surface of cotton fibres was explored. The wall porosity of the ZnO hollow fibres was controlled by changing the concentration of zinc acetate aqueous solution.
