Morphology-dependent templates for crystalline Au nanowire synthesis are prepared from programmable DNA–block-copolymer micelles, in which DNA serves as the polar head group of amphiphilic polymers. Intriguingly, successful templation depends on the morphology of the micelles, with nanowire formation only observed in the case where the soft template is in the ordered cylindrical phase.
