Structure is the most distinctive feature of nanoporous metals. The intricate maze of rounded shapes, where ligaments and pores run after each other disorderly, strikes imagination no less than it imparts properties that, tuned by size effects, have no counterpart in the bulk form. Indisputably, nanoporous Au has been the absolute protagonist of the field of study, unveiling the disrupting potential of nanoporous metals in 1 ar X iv :2 11 1. 12 49 9v 1 [ co nd -m at .m tr lsc i] 2 4 N ov 2 02 1…

Mechanical response of nanoporous metals: A story of size, surface stress, and severed struts

Nanoporous metals made by dealloying are macroscopic network architectures that can contain ∼10 15 nanoscale struts or ligaments per sample. Their mechanical performance is critical to their

A Review of Experimentally Informed Micromechanical Modeling of Nanoporous Metals: From Structural Descriptors to Predictive Structure–Property Relationships

The review article collects articles on the structural characterization and micromechanical modeling of nanoporous metals and discusses the acquired understanding in the context of advancements in the experimental discipline.

Size effects on the mechanical behavior of nanoporous Au.

It is demonstrated that nanoporous metal foams can be envisioned as a three-dimensional network of ultrahigh-strength nanowires, thus bringing together two seemingly conflicting properties: high strength and high porosity.

Approaching the theoretical strength in nanoporous Au

The mechanical properties of nanoporous Au have been investigated by uniaxial compression. Micron-sized columns were machined in the surface of nanoporous Au using a focused Ga+ beam and compressed

Scaling behavior of stiffness and strength of hierarchical network nanomaterials

A two-stage lightweighting Dealloying allows voids to be created in metals, decreasing the weight of the material. However, when the solid fraction is below about 30%, the mechanical properties

Synthesis of tough nanoporous metals by controlled electrolytic dealloying

Dealloying (selective dissolution) of homogeneous metallic alloys such as Ag–Au generates nanoporous metals with intriguing properties. Until now, it has not been possible routinely to prepare such

Topology evolution during coarsening of nanoscale metal network structures

Many experiments exploit curvature-driven, surface-diffusion-mediated coarsening for tuning the characteristic structure size of metal network structures made by dealloying, such as nanoporous gold.

Size dependence of effective Young’s modulus of nanoporous gold

Nanoporous gold (NPG) is a brittle, three-dimensional, random structure of Au with nanometer scale open porosity that is made by dealloying Au∕Ag alloys in acid. In this work, Young’s modulus of NPG
