    Abstract

    Novel nanostructured and high surface area tubular materials were produced combining electrospinning and atomic layer deposition processes with the removal of polymeric template via dissolution. The dissolution process changed the structure of the tube walls, and the smooth atomic layer deposition coating was transformed into a highly complex, coral-like structure. This material, which we have called ''nanocoral,'' has a relatively high surface area, 323 m2 g-1, due to the interconnected cavities formed after the removal of the template. This kind of material has important potential applications, for example, in the fields of catalysts and filtration.
