The size-controlled synthesis of palladium (Pd) nanowires using hexagonal rod-shaped mesoporous silicate materials as tempelates via chemical vapor infiltration (CVI) method was demonstrated. Results showed that the Pd metal inside the silicate did not affect the mesoporous silica framework, and uniform diameters of Pd nanowires without chemical contaminations and deformations were obtained. A significantly depressed melting point of the Pd nanowires was observed around 300°.
