A 3-dimensional polypyrrole-palladium nanocomposite material was prepared by transferring a sponge structure of a sea urchin spine via chemical oxidative polymerization. The nanocomposite material was successfully coated with nickel, maintaining the 3-dimensional sponge structure by electroless plating in an aqueous medium.
