Scholarcy highlights

  • As a service to our authors and readers, this journal provides supporting information supplied by the authors
  • We study for the first time the influence of micropatterned substrates on the growth of nanotubes using a templateless electropolymerization approach
  • The influence of both the nature of the monomer and the deposition charge used in the polymerization process is assessed along with geometric parameters of the microstructured surfaces composed of bidimensionally distributed squared micropillars
  • We hereby demonstrate that the surface coverage with the nanotubes is highly dependent on the geometric parameters of micropatterned substrates
  • We demonstrate that it is possible to obtain a complete coverage of the microstructured substrate at even very low deposition charge applied during the electropolymerization step
  • Any queries should be directed to the corresponding author for the article
