The templated electrodeposition of 200 nm diameter nanowires of the argentic oxynitrate Ag(Ag3O4)2NO3 phase is reported. Their high surface-to-volume ratio and the high average oxidation state of Ag make these wires promising candidates for nanoscale redox processes in which both a high volumetric charge density and a high discharge rate are required. The antibiotic activity of these nanowires was demonstrated by inhibiting the growth of Bacillus cereus bacteria.
