Several different approaches for preparation of nanoparticles supported on surfaces will be described. Chemical modification of single crystal surface, use of templated single crystal surfaces and use of reactive condensed multilayers all provide means for manipulation of growth, composition and properties of nanoparticles. Specific examples discussed will include chemical vapor deposition on gold using metal carbonyl precursors, metal growth on oxygen or sulfur modified and oxidized metal surfaces and preparation of titanium dioxide nanoparticles on ice multilayer.
