Abstract

original image

Intrinsic metal–support interactions in heterogeneous catalysis are very difficult to achieve for supported metal nanoparticle/cluster catalysts owing to quantum size effects and structure-sensitive geometry. In their Communication on page 3418 ff., X. Tang and co-workers describe the nature of electronic metal–support interactions by designing stable supported single-atom silver catalysts with uniform catalytically active sites and controllable electronic states.
