Evaporate to invigorate: The catalytic activity of the Cu/HMS catalyst is greatly enhanced by decorating with only 1 wt. % of cobalt. The co-ammonia-evaporation method leads to stronger interactions between the copper and cobalt species and more metallic cobalt may facilitate the activation of hydrogen.
