ALS Helps Map Catalytic Reactions on Single Nanoparticles

A new synchrotron infrared nanospectroscopy study confirms that structural defects and jagged surfaces at the edges of platinum and gold nanoparticles are key hot spots for chemical reactivity. The experiments pinpoint the most active areas of reactions on nanoscale particles and confirm that structural defects at the periphery are key to catalyst function. More>
