In this contribution, large-area organic charge-transfer complex (AgTCNQ and CuTCNQ) nanowires were synthesized by organic vapor-solid-phase reaction at mild experimental conditions. These nanowires were facilitated on the surface of Cu and Ag foils or different kinds of substrates coated with a layer of silver and copper on a large scale. The excellent field emission properties were observed in the as-grown AgTCNQ and CuTCNQ nanowires. They should have great potential in vacuum device applications.
