Au colloid and titania in different sequence or Au-oxide nano ensembles preformed in hydrosol were deposited on inert amorphous silica or mesoporous SBA-15. It was compared with gold colloid adsorbed on TiO2 or silica support. The formation of the Au/TiO2 interface is discussed in terms of surface charges. Preferential CO oxidation in the presence of hydrogen (PROX) has been correlated with the CO oxidation activity and structural properties, perimeter and the influence of the TiO2 morphology on the catalytic activity has been demonstrated.
