Abstract

We have investigated a novel technique for the preparation of nano-sized Pt metals on Ti-containing mesoporous silica (TMS) thin film by photo-assisted deposition (PAD). The transparent TMS thin film was prepared on a quartz plate through sol—gel/spin coating. XRD, UV-Vis and Ti K-edge XAFS measurements revealed the formation of isolated Ti oxide species with a tetrahedral-coordination geometry in the silica framework. Deposition of Pt metal precursor on TMS thin film under UV-light irradiation, followed by reduction with molecular hydrogen, afforded a transparent thin film (Pt/TMS). The formation of highly dispersed nano-sized Pt metals having narrow size distributions was determined by Pd LIII-edge XANES and TEM analysis. The TMS and Pt/TMS thin films have been demonstrated to exhibit a strong hydrophilic property, even before UV irradiation, compared to the common mesoporous silica and TiO2 thin films. After UV-light irradiation, the contact angle of water droplet on the TMS and Pt/TMS thin films became extremely lower, indicating the appearance of the photo-induced super-hydrophilic property.
