The highly hydrated ionic liquid tetrabutylammonium hydroxide (TBAH) is an efficient ionic liquid precursor (ILP) for the fabrication of zinc oxide mesocrystals. Upon reaction of TBAH with zinc acetate, individual nanometer-sized ZnO building blocks assemble into highly correlated ZnO mesocrystals. The mesocrystals are up to ca. 10 mu m in length and the larger crystals have a channel running along the long crystal axis.
