Abstract

We describe the capsulation of colloidally templated polythiophene (P3-TAA) arrays with multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) after colloidal template electropolymerization. The dissolution of the polystyrene (PS) particle templates, which were assembled via the Langmuir-Blodgett (LB)-like technique, allowed the formation of hollow-shell Janus type arrays.
