A core–shell inorganic nanotubular structure is synthesized applying a WS2 nanotube as a template. The guest material, in this case MoS2, can be distinguished in the TEM from its host material (template) by its contrast and inter-layer distance. Chemical analysis tools (e.g., EDS and EELS) are also utilized to confirm the presence of guest elements.
