Key words: chemical synthesis methods, nanostructures, polymer templates

Recently, one dimensional (1-D) nanostructures, such as wires, rods, tubes, etc., have attracted considerable attention due to their unique shape- and size-dependant properties and many potential applications. Template-directed synthesis is a powerful and widely used method to prepare 1-D objects. As robust unimolecular template, cylindrical polymer brushes have been exploited for the fabrication of various hybrid nanowires and nanorods, for instance, γ-Fe2O3, CdS, CdSe, TiO2, silica, Au, Te, etc. As a key advantage of this polymeric templating, the obtained 1D hybrid nanostructures are colloidally stable in solution, facilitating their further solution processing.
