High-surface-area materials have recently attracted significant interest due to their potential applications. Nanoporous gold (np-Au) represents the fascinating class of mesoporous metals that have been intensively investigated in recent years with promising applications ranging from catalysis, sensorics, and actuation to optics. The current interest and the increasing number of scientific publications show that np-Au by itself is an outstanding nano-material that justifies a book devoted to all aspects of its properties and applications. This book is a multi-disciplinary discussion of this unique nano-material and it is an accessible and comprehensive introduction to the field. All the topics covered are in-depth overviews written by the world's leading scientists in each area.
