Multilayer nanoporous films generated by a layer-by-layer spin-on method are presented (see Figure). Precise control of the porosity of the individual layers that comprise the multilayer structure is demonstrated. Due to the simplicity of this fabrication method a wide range of potential applications in the areas of separation science, biotechnology, optics etc. are envisaged.
