A technology for producing gold films on the surface of fabric materials has been developed, which provides for preliminary wetting of the fabric product with aqueous solutions of gold (III) chloride. In this case, a sorption layer of gold chloride is formed on the surface of fabric materials. Then, when drying these products under sunlight, physicochemical and photochemical processes occur, leading initially to the formation of monovalent gold chlorides, which, having semiconductor properties, provide the release of elemental gold. After washing of by-products on the surface of the material remains an ultra-thin film of gold, which has a sufficiently strong grip on the base. Since the proposed technology does not require special equipment it can be used to apply functional films of gold on various products of technical, household and medical purposes.
