Direct adsorption of gold nanoparticles in the inner of alumina template and following immersion of polystyrene (PS) dichloromethane solution in the template resulted in the fabrication of composite nanotubes of PS and gold nanoparticles. Several methods have been used to characterize the tubular structure. Nanostructured sodium aluminates were formed when the anodic alumina oxide membrane was dissolved by the sodium hydroxide. A "flower" shape was found after etching the template while the synthesis process was recorded as function of a time. The results demonstrate that the shape and size of the aluminates nanostructure can be controlled by etching time and the pore diameter of the alumina membrane.
