An ultrafine nanoporous Ag80Pd20 alloy can be fabricated by chemical dealloying of a rapidly solidified Mg60Ag32Pd8 alloy. The addition of the third element Pd into Mg–Ag realizes the design and functionalization of a nanoporous bimetallic structure, which exhibits superior catalytic activity towards electro-oxidation of ethanol.
