Title: Synthesis, Properties, and Applications of Classes of Ultrathin Metallic Nanowires

The properties of one-dimensional (1D) nanostructured materials can change considerably and unexpectedly, when their diameters attain the ‘ultrathin’ level, i.e. below 10 nm. Herein, we have summarized recent developments associated with not only the synthesis but also more importantly, the applications of ultrathin 1D nanowires. Specifically, various classes of ultrathin metallic nanowires have been proven to be excellent, high-performing structural motifs as electrocatalysts, superconducting materials, electrical devices, and nano-sized pressure sensors. Moreover, the fabrication of ultrathin-based 0D-1D, 1D-1D, and 1D-2D composite hybrid structures may represent one of the most promising designs for novel architectures in energy storage and conversion, photovoltaic devices, photoconductivity, and photoelectrocatalysis.
