Optical spectra of noble metal nano-particles supported on different types of zeolites are studied and compared. The absorbance spectra of Cu, Ag and Au nanoparticles supported on mordenite, β-zeolite, Na/Y and H/Y zeolites respectively are reported. Spectra for pre-exchanged Au-Cu/Na/Y, Au-Ni/Na/Y and Au-Fe/Na/Y are also studied. A simple effective medium approach (Maxwell-Garnett) is used to obtain a theoretical complex effective dielectric function of the composite and to asses the sensibility of the plasmon resonance to the sample characteristics. The knowledge of these properties can hopefully be applied to the development of optical tools to monitor the synthetic path.
