In this paper, large-scale uniform silver and copper nano/microtubes with high length diameter ratios have been successfully synthesized by a facile approach, using low-cost nano-scale glass fibers as templates. The tubular structures can be obtained by reducing of Ag and Cu ions on the surface of the fibers, along with removing the templates. The samples are characterized by SEM and XRD. Results show the tubular structures are very uniform and the tubular walls are composed of densely coalesced crystalline nanoparticles of 30–50 nm.
