A new soft-lithography approach for direct silane nanopatterning, known as gas-transfer lithography, is presented and tested. Chemically active two-dimensional replicas of carbon nanotubes are attained (see image). Amplitude modulation atomic force microscopy reveals silane patterns with distinctive dimensions and chemical composition.
