A facile route for large-scale synthesis of zinc telluride nanostructures has been achieved by a hydrothermal method. Scanning electron microscopy images showed many nanorods stuck together in the middle, composing a typical nanorod bundle. These nanorods consisted of widths in the range ~37~nm and lengths up to several micrometres. Based on a series of contrast experiments under different reaction conditions, some probable effective factors such as capping agents, reductant sorts, time and temperature were discussed.
