New, Simplified Technique for Metallic Palladium Nanofoams (image) University of California - Davis Share Print E-Mail Caption UC Davis physicists Dustin Gilbert, Kai Liu and colleagues have come up with a new, simpler method to make a nanofoam of palladium. A nanofoam is a low density, porous material with very small pore size. The foamy metal could be used to store hydrogen in vehicles or for other purposes.
