A novel strategy has been developed to fabricate PANI nanowires or nanotubes with smaller diameter in AAO template by chemical modification of selected surfactants. With the assistance of surfactant octadecanoic acid(R18), we got the PANI nanowires which diameter is 7 nm in AAO pores with a diameter of 14 nm. By comparing different surfactants, we concluded that by assembling selected surfactant with different length alky group to AAO templates, the diameters of polymer nanowires or nanotubes can be controlled.
