    Abstract

    Diatom frustules decorated with silver nanoparticles between 10 and 20 nm in diameter, are accessible at room temperature under basic conditions using glucose as a reducing agent and without the need of linking agents. The process is sensitive to both pH and the time elapsed after plasma cleaning prior to decoration.
