In presented work we report results of simple and viable method for producing Au/CNT composites. Chemicalcomposition and crystallographic structure of the Au/CNT composites was confirmed by X-ray diffractionmeasurements, while transmission and scanning electron microscopy were used to characterize the morphology ofnanocrystals as well as the distribution of nanocrystals in the composite. The obtained particles with relativelysmall diameter (less than 9 nm) were found to be spatially well dispersed on the carbon nanotubes. The densityof attached Au–nanoparticles is not sufficient, and cannot be improved by simple increasing gold loading.
