Sub-1 nm, extremely long nickel molybdate nanowires are synthesized based on a good/poor solvent system. The ultrathin nanowires can be hierarchically assembled into flexible, free-standing films with good mechanical properties. Compared with the large-size counterpart, nickel molybdate ultrathin nanowires display promising oxygen evolution reaction catalytic performance derived from the ultrathin feature.
