We present a simple solvent-assisted capillary molding method to fabricate zinc oxide (ZnO) nanostructures using an ultraviolet (UV) curable polyurethane acrylate (PUA) mold. A thin film of the ZnO sol-gel precursor solution in methyl alcohol was prepared by spin coating on a solid substrate and subsequently a nanopatterned PUA mold was brought into conformal contact with the substrate under slight physical pressure (∼3.5 bar). After annealing at 230 °C for 4 h, well-defined ZnO nanostructures formed with feature size down to ∼50 nm, aided by capillary rise and solvent evaporation. It was found that the height of capillary rise depended highly on the applied pressure. A simple experimental setup was devised to examine the effects of pressure, revealing that the optimum pressure ranged from 3.5 bar to 5 bar. Also, ZnO nanorods could be selectively grown on patterned regions using the seed layer as a pseudocatalyst when the width of the seed layer was larger than ∼200 nm.
