A nickel for the porous? Porous nickel coatings in form of spheres and nanotubes are synthesized through electrochemical deposition by using different templates and certain electrochemical potentials. These hierarchically ordered nanostructures have potential application as building blocks for electrochemical devices, such as current collectors for energy storage.
