Abstract

A dual patterned conducting polymer array combined with polymer brushes has been fabricated using a facile and novel approach. The method involved a Langmuir-Blodgett-like deposition of latex microsphere particles, electropolymerization, and polymer brush synthesis into the inside cavities of the highly ordered macroporous polymer network.
