Aluminum and antimony-doped zinc oxide nanostructures, oriented on the zinc metal substrates were obtained via hydrothermal (HT) method. It is established that the optimal synthesis parameters (T = 180 °C, t = 6 h, the solution concentration of EDA C = 4.5 M) promotes the formation of less defective and more ordered structures. According to XRD, photoluminescence and Raman spectroscopy the properties of ZnO nanorods, doped with aluminum or antimony vary depending on the concentration of dopants.
