The first attempt to grow ZnO single crystals by the hydrothermal method in an industrial autoclave during 100-day growth cycle resulted in obtaining 200 crystals with mass of each crystal 100-250 g. Examination of the grown crystals showed a high perfection of the monohedron growth pyramid that is the main growing face of ZnO crystals.
