Abstract

The synthesis of Au/TiO2 core-shell structure nanoparticles was carried out by the hydrolysis of TOAA (titanium oxide acethylacetonate) in gold sol ethanol solution with water. It was possible to achieve 1 nm thick TiO2 shell on the surface of gold particles. The morphology and the crystallinity of TiO2 shell were investigated by TEM and UV-vis absorption spectrometer. The crystral structure of TiO2 shell was amorphous because the surface plasmon band of gold nanoparticles appeared only when the radioactive ray was irradiated on the TiO2-coated gold sol ethanol solution.
