Nanoporous silver (NPS) and copper (NPC) obtained by dealloying AgAl and CuAl alloys, respectively, were used as both three-dimensional templates and reducing agents for the fabrication of nanoporous PtAg (NPS-Pt) and PtCu (NPC-Pt) alloys with hollow ligaments by a simple galvanic replacement reaction with H(2)PtCl(6). Electron microscopy and X-ray diffraction characterizations demonstrate that NPS and NPC with similar ligament sizes (30-50 nm) have different effects on the formed hollow nanostructures. For NPS-Pt, the shell of the hollow ligament is seamless. However, the shell of NPC-Pt is comprised of small pores and alloy nanoparticles with a size of ∼3 nm. The as-prepared NPS-Pt and NPC-Pt exhibit remarkably improved electrocatalytic activities towards the oxidation of ethanol and H(2)O(2) compared with state-of-the-art Pt/C catalyst, and can be used for sensitive electrochemical sensing applications. The hierarchical nanoporous structure also provides a good microenvironment for enzymes. After immobilization of glucose oxidase (GOx), the enzyme modified nanoporous electrode can sensitively detect glucose in a wide linear range (0.6-20 mM).
