What is it about?

The work is about a novel material which is inserted between two others during material joining. The interlayer is used as a support for joining, providing microstructural control during the process. This effect is provided by the nanoporosity of the interlayer, which in turn provides a level of chemical activity helping the joining process.

Why is it important?

The work is important since it outlines how better joining and end properties may be attained by using a third material.


This work showcases how chemical methods may be used to provide materials, which in turn help the joining of others during the process of brazing.
