Nanowires of trimesic acid and melamine are shown to be proton conductive, however the magnitude of conductivity is highly dependent on the quality of the nanowire, sample preparation, and measurement conditions. These problems need to be addressed in order to obtain reproducible results for practical use of this new family of proton-conductive materials.
