Abstract

A nanoscale polyaryleneethynylene (PAE) morphologies that are created by a solution molding process utilizing nanostructured anodiscs was reported. Depending upon the molecular structure of the utilized PAE, different self-assembled nanostructures were formed during templating. It was found that the nanostructuring of conjugated materials lead to advancement in semiconductor applications by increasing the surface area of the polymer under consideration.
