Template-based electropolymerization of terthienyl-carboxylate-protected TiO2 nanoparticles (1-TiO2 NPs) in a track-etched membrane template produced the corresponding hybrid nanotubes (NTs) of the TiO2 NPs and polythiophene. New multicomponent hybrid NTs consisting of TiO2 NPs, polythiophene, and porphyrin can be synthesized.
