An array of Ag nanowires has been prepared from a facile, templated approach on Cu(BTC) (1,3,5-benzenetricarboxylic acid) metal organic framework (MOF) micropillars. The Ag-deposited scaffolding material may be used to prepare electronic or optoelectronic devices for various applications.

1, what is the formation mechanism of AgNWs?

2, what factors will determine the morphology of AgNW?

3, Why does Silicon and glass substrate not work?

Although it is a communication, a significant story should be provided.

We don't have answers to any of these questions asked by the reviewer. It seems a lot of people are interested in this from the reading record after this paper was released on the web. We are happy to provide the results to readers and hopefully someone could help figure out the answers.
