Polypyrrole Nanowire Array with High Aspect Ratio Fabricated by Block-Copolymer-Templated Electropolymerization

  • Hideaki Komiyama (a1), Tomokazu Iyoda (a1) and Kaori Kamata (a1) (a2)

Conducting polypyrrole (PPy) nanowire array was electrochemically fabricated by using microphase-separated block copolymer (PEOm-b-PMA(Az)n) thin film as an electrode template. Electropolymerization proceeds selectively through the perpendiculary oriented PEO nanocylindrical microdomains on an ITO electrode coated by the above polymer film. The length of the PPy nanowires was controllable in range of 10-120 nm by the thickness of the coated template film and the amount of passed charge. A 10 nm of diameter, 27 nm of periodicity, and 12 of aspect ratio of the crystalline PPy nanowires were successfully achieved. Selective removal of the template is also achieved simply by rinsing with solubility-controlled mixed solvent.
