Abstract


  • Ultrathin (thickness <100 nm) electrically

    conducting membranes can be

    used as electrodes for sensors, actuators,

    optical devices, fuel cells, scaffolds

    for assembling nanoparticles, and separation

    of biological macromolecules.1-6 Various

    approaches have been suggested for

    the fabrication of free-standing nanomembranes

    based on organic polymers and/or

    inorganic materials: spin-casting of films,7

    layer-by-layer assembly of polyelectrolyte

    multilayers,8 cross-linking of self-assembled

    monolayers,9 and assembly of triblock

    copolymers.10,11 Loading materials such as

    gold nanoparticles12 or carbon nanotubes13

    make membranes robust and electrically

    conductive. However, these methods are

    often time-consuming and have some limitations

    in terms of achievable electrical and

    electrochemical membrane performance as

    well as scale-up. Alternative approaches are

    needed for the preparation of mechanically

    robust, free-standing, conductive nanomembranes

    that could be easily manufactured.
