Growth of ultrathin films of metals and inorganic materials using various templates - both solid and liquid has been reviewed. Such nanoscaled films have been found to be effective in fabrication of devices and sensors. Use of crystal nanochannels of some inorganic compounds has been found to induce novel properties to the films grown within them. It is expected the latter approach will lead to the synthesis of materials with hitherto unknown properties.
