Macroporous gold has been prepared by impregnating artificial opals using electrodeposition. Both latex and silica spheres were used to prepare the opal templates. The silica spheres could be removed without damage to the patterned gold, which is subsequently an excellent reflection of the original template and gives rise to a crystal of air spheres in gold. A structure with short range order and long range disorder was obtained from templates of latex spheres.
