One-dimensional conducting polymer nanostructures hold great promise for many technological applications and can be chemically synthesized in bulk quantities using either template or template-free strategies. Richard Kaner and co-workers highlight on page 1487 recent research activities in this field and present their perspectives on the main challenges and future research directions for this new class of nanomaterials.
