Abstract

Nanoporous templates have seen increased use as a method of creating controlled size nanotubes and nanorods. Currently, the method has focused on the creation of nanomaterials composed of singular polymers or polymer blends. Our study focuses on creating nanomaterials composed of alternating sections of various polymers in a highly controlled manner. The heterostructured, one dimensional polymer nanomaterials may serve for various uses, including biosensors, drug delivery, and biomimetic applications.
