      Abstract:

      Heterogeneous catalyst containing gold nanoparticles (AuNPs)   was  prepared by direct precipitation of collagen of type I   as the  stabilization reagent. The composite is fibrous and   the AuNPs are found  to form patterns of long wires, short   wires, and dispersed patterns on  collagen. The catalytic   reduction of 4-nitrophenol to 4-aminophenol by    NaBH4 in the presence of the composite was   satisfactory.
