In situ assembly of well-dispersed gold nanoparticles on electrospun silica nanotubes for catalytic reduction of 4-nitrophenol

Author affiliations

Abstract

The tubular nanocomposite with well-dispersed distribution of small gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) assembled on the inside and outside surfaces of silica nanotubes (SNTs) was fabricated by combining the single capillary electrospinning technique and an in situreduction approach. The AuNPs/SNTs nanocomposite exhibited a good catalytic activity for reduction of 4-nitrophenol (4-NP).
