Nanoporous filters are used in a variety of
applications, ranging from sensing, catalysis,
purification and separation devices to medicine. In
this study attempts were made to obtain nanoporous
copper from brass via dealloying process. This
involved leaching of the alloy in NaOH solution.
Experiments on cold-rolled and annealed brass have
shown that while a porous surface layer can be
obtained, it is difficult to obtain a full porous
structure across the full thickness of the sheet.
