Direct templating of materials via lyotropic liquid crystalline mesophases of non-ionic surfactants provides an elegant and highly versatile route to the production of a wide range of nanostructured materials with well-defined mesoporous architectures of extended spatial periodicities. This technique has now been applied in the electrochemical synthesis of adherent nanostructured tellurium films. This represents an important step towards the synthesis of II-IV semiconductor compounds such as cadmium telluride. Low angle X-ray scattering and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) studies of the resulting tellurium films indicate the presence of a system of uniform cylindrical pores organized in an hexagonal array.
