Silver nanowires (NWs) are currently fabricated via template-free or template-assisted methods. The former is based on a medium-mediated anisotropic synthesis, which enables precursor atoms to be selectively adsorbed onto specific crystallographic planes, and the latter is performed via directional growth guided by preformed templates. These methods are costly and complicated. We outline a facile and low-cost approach for the electrochemical synthesis of silver NWs in a manner that is template- and surfactant-free and that provides control over the NW diameter in the range of 80 to 800 nm by the repetition of nucleation and dissolution. The nanowires vertically grow with the help of the interface anisotropy driven by a field enhancement at the tips of the islands nucleated on the substrate in ultra-dilute electrolytes (ca. 10(-5) M), which is similar to a lightning-rod effect. The silver nanowires of vertical configuration are utilized for fabrication of anisotropic conducting, transparent, and flexible films.
