We propose a novel black gold-like structure on the base of plasmonic nanostructures incorporated in the MOFs cavities for potential application in solar energy and photochemistry. Mean hybrid structure was prepared by sputtering of gold on the MOFs decorated substrates. Since the size of gold nanostructures, created during the deposition procedure is smaller than the size of pores in MOFs, the gold atoms filled the 3D MOFs structure and formed the nanostructures with wide distribution of sizes and shapes. The surface and bulk properties of created hybrid materials were carefully characterized. In particular, the presence and distribution of gold nanoparticles was confirmed by SEM-EDX and TEM measurements. Plasmonic properties were characterized by UV-Vis spectroscopy and SERS measurements using R6G as model analyte. Our results suggest that created hybrid material is a potential candidate for application in the field of black gold utilization, for example affective light absorber and convertor.
