Platinum based catalytic materials have received significant attention, particularly in the shape and size control of faceted materials for catalysis. However, a fundamental understanding of controlled growth towards catalytic material design is essential for future implementation and broad application. In this review, we provide an overview of recent findings, focusing on methods for shape control as well as the effects of exposed surface facets on select catalytic reactions.
