Nanowire growth chemistry is, in many ways, analogous to catalyzed polymerization reactions. The quality of nanowires obtained from a synthesis is rather sensitive to reactant and seed particle concentrations, reaction temperature, pressure, the associated reactant decomposition kinetics, and nanowire crystallization rates.
