Kick-starting a new journey with metal NPs: For π-acid catalysis, a journey from homogeneous to heterogeneous reactions has begun. Metal nanoparticles supported on metal oxides or monodispersed nanoparticles are reported to exhibit significant electrophilic character in C[BOND]C bond activation enabling reactions, which, to date, have been catalyzed under homogeneous metal catalysis.
