MoS2-based nanocatalysts are used in hydrodesulfurization processes at oil refineries. In their Communication on page 10 153 ff., S. Helveg and co-workers provide single-atom-sensitive electron microscopy images of nanocatalysts prepared by industrial-style methods. The catalytically important edge structures observed match predictions made by surface science studies. Cover courtesy of P. Møller and S. Nygaard, Haldor Topsøe A/S.
