    Abstract

    Nanoporous metal foams have an increasing importance in applications such as chemical catalysis, energy storage, and nanomedicine. This paper examines a simple strategy for controlling the pore volume fraction and pore size of nanoporous films synthesized by dealloying thin-films. By means of controlling the temperature and concentration of nitric acid in dealloying of AgAu thin-films, partially dealloyed AgAu nanoporous films are produced with a high degree of control over the pore size and pore volume fraction. Such capability enables the design of nanoporous metal catalysts materials with desired morphology.
