Abstract- The ZnO films were prepared by Chemical Bath Deposition CBD technique without employing any stirring technique using weak and strong complexing agents such as Dimethylamine DMA and Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid EDTA. The optical structural and morphological properties of ZnO films have been investigated. When the complexing agent were DMA and EDTA the X-ray diffraction XRD patterns from the values of interplanar spacing of a3.351 and c5.226 were hexagonal structure. The film grown using EDTA was well defined grains with a thickness in the range 0.5 - 0.726956m while the SEM micrograph of DMA film has no well defined crystallites and this was due to restriction on precipitation. The films prepared in absence of complexing agent shows reflections along 002 200 and 203 planes corresponding to formation of hexagonal wurtzite structure of zinc oxide and formed a network of flakes and magnified cauliflowers of diameter 0.8-126956m. The optical band gap for DMA and EDTA associated thin films were 3.3 and 3.35Ev respectively. Therefore the effect of complexing agent on the crystal phase of ZnO films was generally found. The thin films obtained in this research could be used in high density data storage systems solid-state lighting where white light is obtained from phosphors excited by blue or UV light-emitting diodes secure communications and bio-detection.
