Liang Ren, Xiaojun Xian, Kai Yan, Lei Fu, Yuwen Liu, Shengli Chen and Zhongfan Liu Nanowires: A General Electrochemical Strategy for Synthesizing Charge-Transfer Complex Micro/Nanowires (Adv. Funct. Mater. 8/2010) Advanced Functional Materials 20
A general electrochemical strategy for synthesizing charge-transfer complex micro-/nanowires utilizing a carbon nanotube (CNT) electrode is demonstrated by Z. Liu and co-workers on page 1209. The background scanning electron microscopy image depicts high-quality AgTCNQ nanowires grown from a CNT electrode. The uniform and high-aspect-ratio nature of thus-grown charge-transfer complex micro-/nanowires intrinsically originates from the specific features of CNTs in terms of one-dimensional structure and ultrasmall surface area with few or no defects.
