Abstract

Preparation of gold cluster/silica nanocomposite aerogel was performed using spontaneous wet-gel formation technique. The gold particles were immobilized on the silica structure to the extent that they were not flushed out upon supercritical CO2 drying. It is found that the gold particles are absorbed in a silica wet gel in toluene or hexane solution resulting in the formation of nanocomposite gel.
