Bulk quantities of electronic conducting polymers such as polyaniline, polypyrrole, and poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene), having an unusual 2D nanoclip-like morphology is described using a general oxidative template assembly route which is orchestrated by an insoluble complex formed between an anionic oxidant (S2O82−) and a cationic surfactant.
