As relentless efforts Continue to reduce the size of electronic circuitry to reach higher storage density and faster data processing speeds, new concepts are being developed to build functional devices from molecular components. The mesoporous materials offer a range of accessible pore sizes and channel morphologies that allow for effective incorporation of transition elements to give Continuous metal nanowires within the channels. In this paper we report the production of silver nanowires both included in and extruded from silver ion containing mesoporus precursors prepared through dry salt occlusion.
