Abstract: Sonochemical synthesis of ZnO and ZnO doped with boron has been carried out in a conventional sonicator and the presence of boron has been confirmed from ICP-OES measurement. PXRD indicates the formation of hexagonal wurzite structure of ZnO with larger crystallite size in the doped samples. TEM studies show the formation of tetrapod like structures for ZnO: B samples which is not seen in ZnO as prepared. The evolution of tetrapods has been explained on the base of impurity adsorption and carbo-thermal reduction taking place during the process of sonication. � 2012 American Institute of Physics.
