- ... Au nanoparticles with different sizes (10, 20, 30, and 50 nm) were synthesized using a seed-assisted approach and anchored onto Pt/TiO₂ employing 3-mercaptopropionic acid as the organic linker. The sizes of the Au nanoparticles were controlled within a narrow range so that the size-dependent surface plasmonic resonance effect on sensitizing Pt/TiO₂ can be thoroughly studied. We found that 20 nm Au ...
