Crystalline silver nanowires.....

Crystalline silver nanowires are formed inside micellar arrays of a template consisting of a (dendritic polysilane)/polyisocyanide block copolymer. Silver ions, which coordinate to the peptide donor sites rather than the allylic end groups of the silane moiety, are reduced under the TEM electron beam to metallic silver (N.A.J.M. Sommerdijk et al., April 2; Adv. Mater. 2002, 14, 489-492).
