Palladium-rich nanostructures with widely different morphologies are obtained by electrochemical processing of a nickel-palladium metallic glass. We showed that starting with a homogeneous and isotropic amorphous surface, the morphology and chemistry can be controlled through the magnitude of the electrochemical potential to obtain hierarchical nanostructures with high catalytic activity such as these palladium dendrites. To learn more about electrochemical processing of metallic glasses and the image, see Mukherjee et al. in Advanced Functional Materials 2013 in Schroers lab publications.
