Abstract: Modified silica material – SBA-15, with high specific surface area and large pore volume, was used as a carrier for gold nanoparticles. The influence of alumina modification and activation methods with gold nanoparticles on catalysts activity in glucose oxidation with hydrogen peroxide were compared.
