The template-based electropolymerization of terthienyl-porphyrin, 1, and its zinc porphyrin, Zn-1, in a nanoporous alumina template produced the corresponding new porphyrin nanotubes, poly-1 NTs and poly-Zn-1 NTs, respectively. The encapsulation of silver nanoparticles into the inner cavity of the poly-1 NTs provides the silver nanoparticle-porphyrin hybrid NTs.
