Nanoporous Alumina – A Platform for Multifunctional Innovative Applications


Using anodic oxidation, it is possible to form aluminium oxide membranes with highly-structured pores of diameter between 20 nm and 400 nm. By optimising the process conditions, membranes with area of several decimeters can be formed. Given that the pore diameter can be controlled, such membranes are suitable for use in the most demanding applications in medicine, in fuel...
