A templating method has been improved to form oriented one-dimensional metal nanostructures on a silicon surface. To achieve this, the silicon surface is modified with 3-aminopropyl trimethoxysilane. The cationic surfactant cetyltrimethylammonium bromide is used as a micellar template. The average width of the obtained Pt strips is 35 nm, the average width of the obtained Pd strips is 60 nm.
