Nanowires of Sn–Co alloys were grown inside the channels of anodic alumina membrane by potentiostatic deposition. The scanning electron microscope images showed the formation of cylindrical nanowires whose height was increasing with deposition time. The X-ray patterns did not show significant diffraction peaks, suggesting the formation of amorphous phases. The highercontent of Co in the nanowires, in comparison to the initial composition of the electrolytic bath, was attributed to a higher rate ofCo electrodeposition. These nanowires seem to possess specific features suitable for innovative application in the field of Li-ionbatteries due to their dimensional stability and high specific surface.
