Multiwall WS2nanotube templates were used as hosts to prepare core–shell PbI2@WS2 nanotubes by a capillary-wetting method. Conformal growth of PbI2 layers on the inner wall of the relatively wide WS2 nanotubes (i.d. ca. 10 nm) leads to nanotubular structures which were not previously observed in narrow carbon nanotube templates. Image simulation after structural modeling (see picture) showed good agreement with the experimental HRTEM image.
