Abstract

A stacked donut-like mesospace is successfully introduced into Pt fibers by assembling Pt nanoparticles with uniform particle size, by utilizing the guided deposition of Pt nanoparticles in preferentially oriented liquid crystals. We clearly demonstrate that the collaboration of both LLC templating by electrochemical processes and hard templating utilizing a confined effect can lead to the genesis of new nanostructured metals. Such a unique metal-based nanoarchitecture enhances the surface area and enables the high-mass transportation of guest species. Preferentially oriented mesochannels should contribute significantly to the fine control and transport of electronic carriers through metal fibers.
