Gold nanoparticles deposited on TiO2 Degussa P25, prepared by deposition precipitation with urea, were studied for the optimization in the photocatalytic hydrogen production. The effect of parameters such as: mass of catalyst, gold loading, thermal treatment and atmosphere of treatment were evaluated.
