Nanoporous gold by alloy corrosion : method-structure-property relationships

Matthias Graf, Benedikt Roschning & Jörg Weißmüller
Nanoporous gold (NPG) made by selective corrosion, or dealloying, serves as a model system for the investigation of electrochemical and mechanical properties of nanomaterials. While various dealloying protocols are in use, it is typically assumed that the structural characteristics are identical and independent of the preparation technique. Yet, reported properties such as strength, Young's modulus, or catalytic behavior can vary widely. Here, we compare the microstructure and the mechanical behavior of NPG structures prepared by...
