One-step electrochemical synthesis of hierarchical single crystalline copper-tin nanobrushes is achieved in a room temperature 1-ethyl-3- methylimidazolium dicyanamide ionic liquid containing 0.016 M Cu(I) and 0.033 M Sn(II) at a low current density of -0.4 mA cm-2. This study also shows that morphologies of the deposits can be manipulated by the Cu(I)/Sn(II) concentrations in the solution, and thus, offers a method for reproducible preparation of the nanobrushes.
