    Abstract: Preparing well-ordered nanotubes on materials surface is a great of interest in many applications. Bio-inspired and theoretical approaches show that porous structures such as nanotubes are key parameters for both surface hydrophobicity and water adhesion. Here, a very easy soft-template electropolymerization approach is used to form nanotubular str... Show More
