|Abstract:||Mono and bicomponent TiO 2 and WO 3 nanoparticles were synthesized inside Vycor ® glass pores, by cycles of impregnation of the glass with the respective oxide precursor followed by its thermal decomposition. The impregnation-decomposition cycle (IDC) methodology promoted a linear mass increase of the glass matrix, and allowed tuning the nanoparticle size. X-ray diffraction and Raman spectroscopy data allowed identifying the formation of TiO 2 as anatase phase, while WO 3 is a mixture of the γ-WO 3 (monoclinic) and δ-WO 3 (triclinic) phases. High resolution transmission electron microscopy images revealed that for 3, 5, and 7 IDC, the TiO 2 nanoparticles obtained presented average diameters of 3.4, 4.3, and 5.1 nm, and the WO 3 nanoparticles have 2.9, 4.6, and 5.7 nm sizes. These TiO 2 and WO 3 monocomponent nanoparticles were submitted to IDC with the other oxide precursor, resulting in bicomponent nanoparticles. The broadening and shift of the Raman bands related to titanium and tungsten oxides suggest the formation of hetero-structure core-shell nanoparticles with tunable core sizes and shell thicknesses. © Springer Science+Business Media B.V. 2010.|
