Given a commutative ring R, one can associate with R an undirected graph Γ(R) whose vertices are the nonzero zero-divisors of R, and two distinct vertices x and y are joined by an edge iff xy = 0. In this article, we determine precisely those planar graphs that can be realized as Γ(R) when R is an infinite commutative ring.
