Title: XAFS Study on Nano-Sized Metal Catalyst Prepared by a Photo-Assisted Deposition Using Ti-Containing Mesoporous Silica Thin Film Photocatalyst

Abstract

Transparent Ti-containing mesoporous silica (TMS) thin films can be prepared on quartz plates using the spin-coating sol-gel method. These thin films have performed super-hydrophilic surface property. Using a photo-assisted deposition (PAD) method, nano-sized Pt metal can be highly deposited on TMS thin films under UV-light irradiation. XAFS measurement indicates that TMS thin films contain isolated and tetrahedrally coordinated Ti-oxide moieties in the frameworks and nano-sized Pt particles can be highly deposited on the photo-excited Ti species in TMS thin films. Measurement of contact angle of droplet water showed that the surface property of Pt/TMS thin film is also hydrophilic as comparable to that of original TMS thin film.
