AbstractGold nanoparticles (Au NPs) of different sizes were supported on fibrous silica nanospheres (KCC-1) by various methods. The size and the location of the Au NPs on the support were found to depend on the preparation method. The KCC-1-supported Au NPs were thoroughly characterized by using HR-TEM, XRD, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, UV, and Brunauer-Emmett-Teller surface area measurements and were applied in catalysis for the oxidation of CO. The catalytic performance is discussed in relation to the morphological properties of KCC-1. © 2016 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.
