Abstract

In this work, we studied the Pt particles embedded on crystalline TiO2 nanopowders. As it is well known, metal nanoparticles distributed on TiO2 surface can improve dramatically the reaction rate and selectivity of reaction in gas sensing. We prepared a wide set of TiO2 samples with different nominal Pt concentration. The aim of this study was to analyse the Pt distribution on TiO2 surface (density of Pt, particle size distribution, etc.), as well as the Pt phases existing in our samples. We used High Resolution Transmission Electron Microscopy (HRTEM) as a powerful tool to study Pt particles morphology. The HRTEM images were compared with computer simulations to confirm the results obtained. The chemical composition of the material has been also investigated by Inductively Coupled Plasma (ICP).
