Nickel nano- and micro- tubes were prepared by electroless deposition in ion track template membranes. By choosing the appropriate etching conditions, membranes with cylindrical or conical pores were obtained, allowing the preparation of cylindrical or conical tubules.


A two step activation process was employed for membrane activation.. The bath used for deposition was an acidic one. Typically for acidic bath Ni deposition, by energy dispersive X ray analysis a phosphorous content of up to 10 % was found in the deposit.
