Using an industrially viable one-pot method we have synthesized Pt catalysts supported on aluminum-stabilized TiO2. Through statistically designed experiments and EXAFS/XANES analysis, we have examined the effects of varying synthetic parameters on the Pt dispersion and have obtained dispersions as high as 66% for a 3 wt% Pt catalyst.
