Electrodeposition is a simple and flexible method for the synthesis of one-dimensional (1D) nanostructures and has attracted more and more attention in recent years. 1D nanostructures of metals, semiconductors and polymers have been successfully fabricated by electrodeposition. Templates were often used in the electrochemical process to realize the 1D growth. On the other hand, some materials with intrinsic anisotropic crystal structures can also be prepared by the template-free electrochemical method. In this paper, we review the recent patents progress and offer some prospects of future directions in electrodeposition of 1D nanostructures.

Keywords: Electrodeposition, one-dimensional nanostructures, template-assisted, template-free
