High-temperature hydrogen reduction reactions enable the synthesis and processing of binary metal oxide composite nanoparticles starting from titanium, ruthenium, and silicon, while the use of a surface modifier and an organic surfactant enables the synthesis of catalytic thin films from binary semiconductor oxides. Surface characterization by XRD, SEM, TEM, AFM, Raman spectroscopy, and BET measurements indicate that the incorporation of binary oxide particles into the semiconductor materials altered the surface properties and morphology of the nanoparticles while the surface modifier and organic surfactant loading can be experimentally adjusted to obtain thin films of varying morphological characteristics.
