The unique properties of materials brought about by control of structure at the nanodimension have generated much excitement in the research community in recent times. Those of us interested in the modification and efficient utilization of inherently conducting polymers have not escaped the nanotechnology euphoria.

Potentially, the benefits to be reaped from control of the ICP structure from the nanoscale to the microdomain and beyond are substantial. The more highly ordered structures obtained are expected to yield novel electronic, electrochemical, mechanical, chemical, and photoelectro-chemical properties. Researchers have developed innovative strategies and approaches that enable controlled dimension nanocomponents to be produced. As with all areas of nanotechnology, the challenge is to assemble these nano-components into devices or structures that display the benefits of nanodimensional control.
