Individual DNA molecules have been used as templates for the formation of conducting nanowires. Both binary compound and molecular-based materials have been prepared with this method. The nanowires are electrically conducting as confirmed by IN measurements of single-wire two-terminal devices. Polymer-based nanowires are shown to spontaneously aggregate over time to form nanoropes.
