Abstract

Gold nanoparticles have been precipitated on the surface of quartz slides covered with titanium (IV) butoxide. UV irradiation of modified quartz slides immersed into water solutions of hydrogen tetrachloroaurate of different concentrations (2.5 × 10−4–1.0 × 10−2 M) has been used for this purpose. Properties of produced samples have been investigated by UV–Vis spectroscopy, IR spectroscopy, SEM-EDX, TGA, and AFM. According to the obtained data, produced gold particles are distributed on modified quartz surface very uniformly and the average size of gold particles is about 30–50 nm.
