The self-organization of porous nanostructures in anodic metal oxide is considered. A mathematical model which incorporates the chemical reactions at the metal-oxide and oxide-electrolyte interfaces and elastic stress caused by the electrostrictive effects is developed. It is shown through linear stability analysis, that a short-wave instability exists in certain parameter regimes which can lead to the formation of hexagonally ordered pores observed in anodized aluminum oxide.
