Paper Abstract

The fabrication of a rhenium containing hyperbranched polymer (1) and poly[2-(3-thienyl)ethoxy-4-butylsulfonate] (PTEBS) multilayer on different ZnO nanostructures, including free standing ZnO tetrapods and ZnO nanorod arrays using layer-by-layer approach was demonstrated. The growth of the multilayer film and the attachment of the metal nanoparticles on the ZnO surface were investigated by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and high resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM). The results show that accurate control in multilayer film growth can be achieved. This paper presents a versatile method in modifying the surface of different ZnO nanostructures.
