  • Patent number: 11060191
    Abstract: A method for producing a hollow structure useful as a base material for a heat sink or the like which increases a heat dissipation property of devices mounted in various kinds of electronic apparatuses, without sacrificing downsizing, thinning, weight reduction, and multifunctionality, and provides a hollow structure. The method including: producing a plated composite by coating a surface of a core made of aluminum to form a copper plating layer; cutting off part of the plated composite to expose cut surfaces of the core; and turning a part corresponding to the core into a hollow part by immersing the plated composite in a sodium solution which dissolves aluminum but does not dissolve copper and selectively dissolving and removing only the aluminum, thereby producing a hollow structure whose skeletal part is composed of all copper plating layers.
