Template-Synthesized Nanotubes Through Layer-by-Layer Assembly Under Charge Interaction
Abstract:Aqueous polymer nanotubes can be assembled by combining the layer-by-layer (LbL) assembly and template technique under charge interaction. This method allows lots of species, especially in an aqueous system to form a tubular structure in the pores of the template. The tubes functions can be readily modified by introducing various functional components. Such assembled nanotubes are often mechanically stable and highly flexible. They have also numerous potential applications in delivering materials.
