We demonstrate a simple and cost-effective synthesis of an organic (polyaniline, PANI)/inorganic (zinc oxide, ZnO) one-dimensional coaxial nanowire (1D-CNW) array directly on a conducting substrate by (1) electrochemical deposition of aniline and its polymerization to PANI on the pore walls of a track-etched polycarbonate membrane and (2) subsequent electrodeposition of ZnO in the core of hollow PANI nanowires (NWs). The surface morphology and heterojunction formation in 1D-CNWs at the… CONTINUE READING
