High surface area monolithic foams of essentially pure metal were prepared. Salts of the corresponding metal were prepared as loose powders, pressed into shapes, ignited under an inert atmosphere, and then heated under an atmosphere containing hydrogen to form nanostructured metal foam monoliths of essentially pure metal having a very high surface area.
