Mesoporous SiO2-Supported Pt Nanoparticles for Catalytic Application

Figure 5

TEM image of Pt/SiO2 prepared by “one-pot” method with ethylene glycol as template. Pt nanoparticles as small black spots in the TEM image show that chloroplatinic acid was encapsulated before gelation and then reduced in situ. There is no Pt loss in this method.
