Poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT) nanocapsules and mesocellular foams have been selectively fabricated by surfactant-mediated interfacial polymerization (see Figure). The morphology of the PEDOT nanomaterials significantly depends on the surfactant concentration, and the PEDOT nanocapsules and mesocellular foams show good performance as supercapacitors.
