ZnO porous films were successfully anodized on pure Zn sheet via electrochemical anodization in the glycerol base electrolyte containing ammonium fluoride salt as a pore enhancing agent. The structural and morphological properties of anodized and annealed films were characterized by X-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscopy, respectively. This shows the formation and growth of ZnO porous structure.
