An Original Process of Nanoporous Materials via Templating Nickel Phosphate Colloidal Particles
A novel templating method for preparing nanoporous materials has been developed. Spherical nickel phosphate particles synthesized through a homogeneous precipitation method were used as templates after annealing to fabricate porous metals. Effort of annealing temperature on the morphology of the spherical particles and the structure of outcome materials were studied. Hierarchical nanoporous metal with a high surface area was obtained using a template annealed at 200 oC.
