Hybrid metal-organic architectures can be fabricated at the nanoscale using guided self-assembly on well-defined organic scaffolds to produce layered nanostructures. We have developed a new chemical approach to fabricate nanopatterns of metal nanostructures via electroless metal deposition of nanopatterned silane thin films. First, a surface with different functionalities is prepared with engineered nanopatterns of adhesive and resistive silanes. Next, the organosilane nanopatterns are used as a foundation for site-selective electroless deposition of metals such as iron oxide.
