In their recent Catalysis Science & Technology Perspective article, Hans Niemantsverdriet and colleagues look at how nanoparticle model systems on planar supports can be used to study changes under realistic reaction conditions.
This work has allowed the group to gain insight into many aspects of catalysis – for example it provides a window into the mechanisms of catalyst regeneration. Read this Hot Article now to find out more about recent advances in studying catalyis using planar supports – FREE to read!
