Nanoporous metallic materials (NPMM) have high surface areas per volume or weight, which makes them suitable for catalytic, electrochemistry, or some thermal applications. However, there is still a need to link the properties of the materials to their structure, and in particular to examine the relationship between ligament performance and the overall foam performance. Nanoporous gold has been thoroughly studied, however in the current work we exam copper alloys (pure copper, Cu-Ni, and Cu-Zn). It is well known that the properties of NPMM are affected by the type of structure present, the interconnectivity between pores, surface area, thickness of the struts, order degree, relative density and material nature. In the current study we examine solid solution strengthening effects on the mechanical response of alloy NPMMs and connections between the mechanical reliability and their electrical and thermal performance.
