Polypyrrole-Gold (PPy/Au) segment nanowires are prepared using anodized aluminum oxide (AAO) templates and assembled into a curved superstructure. Since the shape of the obtained superstructures can be designed to be capsule-like with inner space for containing materials, and their openings and closures can be controlled with external stimuli, these structures can be useful for a large variety of applications. Inner space of capsule-like superstructures is an important factor for their applications, and the volume of the inner space can be assessed using the generalized equation suggested by J. K. Lim (Bull. Korean Chem. Soc. 33, 2699 (2012)). In this paper, we introduce a new approach to obtain correct and simplified equation without redundant assumption which was used to induce the previous equations, and recalculate the volume of the inner space in the capsule-like superstructure using a new equation.
